And that’s just one of the many benefits of using Vacation Tracker in Google Workspace. Keep reading to learn more!
The benefits of using Vacation Tracker in Google Workspace
Use a single sign-in
Remembering passwords is hard.
After all, why should you have to remember an extra set of credentials just for the sole purpose of tracking leaves? Our minds are cluttered enough. Let’s not add an extra set of credentials to the very long list of things we all have to remember
With Vacation Tracker, you can sign in with the same credentials you use to log in to Google Workspace to make full use of our online dashboard and other features.
Get easy access
Until today, there were two options when it came to leave tracking. You either tracked your time off in your email, or you tracked it in your calendar. Here’s a wild concept: what if you use both? That makes much more sense, right?
Well, clear your schedule because Vacation Tracker is directly integrated into Google — making tracking your time off just as easy as checking your inbox. Not only that, the app is directly integrated into your Google Calendar as well, giving you easy access to scheduled leaves from the comfort of your workspace.
This ultimately saves you a ton of time in the long run, which would otherwise be wasted mindlessly switching back and forth between apps.
Spend less time on payroll
Today’s workforce runs on a “gotta-have-it-now” mentality.
And a time-consuming process like manually entering leave into a system simply won’t cut it. Just think about all the productivity lost from employees having to know their leave balances from memory. With our leave management system, you don’t have to manually record and spend days calculating employee vacation days on payroll anymore. Take advantage of all the benefits your team can enjoy by using our tool. From minimizing costly errors to keeping employees involved in the leave process, there’s no better way to stay ahead of the pack than by automating your leave tracking.
With access to our individual user profiles, your team will know exactly how much each employee costs. By doing so, you can eliminate the guesswork involved in payroll calculations and save yourself valuable time that would otherwise be wasted on unnecessary back-and-forth communication. In turn, you will also be able to improve your labor costs by knowing exactly how much each employee costs. Talk about a win-win situation!
Stay informed of upcoming leaves
How many times have you been hit with the last-minute surprise of an important teammate leaving for vacation right before an important deadline?
Wave goodbye to those unwanted surprises with our daily/weekly notifications. These daily reminders will keep you informed of all upcoming leaves in your department or organization. Wanna know the best part? They get delivered directly to your inbox, saving you the hassle of constantly asking everyone who’s going on vacation when.
Simplified leave approval
Perhaps the biggest benefit of using Vacation Tracker in Google Workspace is how easy it becomes to approve and request leaves.
Administrators can receive requests from their employees directly in their inboxes. Then, their employees will get notified of the outcome immediately in their respective inboxes too. Now, instead of waiting for hours for a response from HR, your team can get to requesting and getting leave approval in just a matter of minutes. All from where they work. Isn’t that super convenient?
