Introducing Vacation Tracker for Microsoft Teams

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Requesting and tracking time off in the workplace has never been easier or more affordable thanks to Vacation Tracker, your one-stop-shop for leave tracking, now available for Microsoft Teams.

 

We know how you feel about leave tracking and we sympathize with you! Leave tracking is an important yet pesky HR task. Therefore, automating it just makes sense. 

 

Our easy-to-use software takes the fuss out of managing team schedules by keeping all employee information, leave requests, calendars, notifications, and documents all in one place. 

 

From the time it was made available to Microsoft Teams users, hundreds of teams from large and small businesses have been able to reap the benefits of Vacation Tracker. 

 

We’re proud and excited to be helping organizations become experts at leave tracking through the use of the Vacation Tracker integration with Teams.

Vacation Tracker’s brief origin story is that before we launched to the public, it was essentially used as an internal tool. Our Montreal-based team was working closely with team members located in Serbia. As it often happens in these situations, management was having a hard time keeping track of employee leave. Dedicated to creating effective processes, and with an unwavering commitment to creating tools that are fun, aesthetically pleasing, and that actually work, Vacation Tracker was born. Now well into its adolescence, this app has become a one-stop-shop for any organization’s leave tracking needs. And we still use it too!

 

Indeed, when our whole team switched over to Microsoft Teams, we brought Vacation Tracker along with us. Since then, the Vacation Tracker integration with Teams has gone through many iterations and it’s still constantly growing and improving through customer feedback. 

 

Given its origin story, Vacation Tracker is perfect for remote teams. We’ve also made sure that it’s a cinch to set up and has a ton of handy features. 

 

Our Vacation Tracker integration for Teams has a sleek online dashboard. It also comes with the Vacation Tracker bot and the Teams tabs, which include all of these key features:

 

  • Time Off Requests  
  • Rollover Policy
  • Customizable Locations 
  • Calendar Integrations 
  • Multiple Department Management 
  • Customized Leave Types 
  • Built-In Reporting 
  • Customized Employee Profiles

A recently improved feature is Department & Location Customization. For instance, members of remote teams should be able to take advantage of all of the days off that they’re entitled to in the country in which they work. For a larger remote team, this might mean many possible locations and local policies to consider. It can get confusing – fast.

 

With Vacation Tracker, managers can easily manage different Leave Types and different holiday schedules, no matter the team size or location. They can organize employees into Locations that respect local employment laws. However, when it comes to managing leave requests and approvals, it may be easiest to organize that same remote team by the department. Not a problem! As a manager, you don’t have to choose. With Department and Location Customization, you can keep track of local holidays and of your teams, from anywhere in the world.

 

On top of all of these features, our Customer Service team is always available to provide top-notch customer support. We pride ourselves on quick, friendly, and responsive customer service.
