Have you ever needed to know exactly when your employees took their last breather? Or find out who approved your employee’s time off? We’ve had those needs too, and that’s why we’re introducing our brand new Logs feature. This new Logs tab is a major feature update that’s been in the works for some time here at Vacation Tracker, and we’re so excited to finally roll it out for our users. But first…

What is Vacation Tracker?

No more back-and-forth emails for leave requests. No more spreadsheets to keep track of leaves. That’s the beauty of Vacation Tracker’s easy-to-use technology. Vacation Tracker is a revolutionary tool that was built with the modern remote worker in mind. We automatically track leave requests, so you can spend less time nagging your boss, and more time relaxing for your vacation.

Vacation Tracker is a 2-in-1 solution for both vacation requests and leave tracking. It helps companies focus on their employees’ needs, keep track of vacations, and eliminates the hassle of sending unnecessary emails for leave requests. We are integrated with Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Google Workspace – so that you can choose the one that works best for your team. Here are a few things you can do with Vacation Tracker:

  • Establish multiple leave types
  • Request and approve leaves in just a few clicks
  • Send out daily/weekly notifications to everyone in your department or team
  • Get a quick overview of scheduled leaves through our convenient dashboard
  • Sync with your favorite external calendar (Apple, Outlook, Google, etc.)
  • Automate the rollover of accrued leaves

…and much more! Vacation Tracker’s simple yet effective features are at the core of its mission to serve as a one-stop-shop for all of your vacation tracking needs. The best way to experience the magic of Vacation Tracker (and its new Logs tab) is by signing up for a free trial:

An Introduction to our new Logs tab

Vacation Tracker’s new Logs feature is the perfect example of an efficient and easy-to-use tool that makes time-off tracking almost effortless. Users of this page can view recent updates related to leave types with rollover days, leave type quotas, and more!

With our new Logs tab, you can now easily view a complete audit trail of all your employees’ leave activity — from approval to status updates, workweeks, PTO, and more — in one place. In simple words, Administrators are now able to see who did what, where, and when and get full visibility into their team’s leave-related activities. Users can view their own logs as well.

Here’s how it works

Every time there is a change related to your leave tracking history, this log updates itself with crucial details that often get misplaced — details like who approved the leave, the time stamp, date of approval, and more. You can search for these details based on Timeline (date period) or Filters (Custom search). Here is a list of events you can expect to see in our new Logs tab:

  • Status change (when the user is activated, deactivated, or deleted)
  • Changes in user data
  • Updates to leave quota
  • Work week changes
  • Location and department change
  • Accrued days
  • End date/deactivation of users

How to access Vacation Tracker’s Logs tab

You can access your Logs tab in 6 easy steps:

  1. Visit app.vacationtracker.io/connect
  2. Log in with your credentials (from Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Workspace)
  3. From the left-hand side of the menu, click on your profile page
  4. On your profile page, click on the Logs tab
  5. Filter among the options you’d like to view
  6. Select the date range

And voila! You can now access all important leave-related information from your account.
