Vacations, Days Off or Half-Days

With Vacation Tracker it’s never been easier to request vacations, days off or half-days. To request any type of time off, all your team members have to do is simply type “/vacation” in any channel in Slack, and they will be presented with various options. After they choose what type of time off they’re requesting, all they have to do it selected the dates, or hours if they’re taking a half-day off, and confirm.

Daily/Weekly Notifications

Your Vacation Tracker chatbot will send managers a daily summary of all the pending requests from your team. And once approved, managers and team members will receive reminders directly in Slack about upcoming vacations, days off and holidays. You’ll never have to worry about coming into the office, and finding out that the person you were counting on isn’t in today. The Vacation Tracker chatbot will be sure to let you know on time who is out of the office which day. You can configure weekly notifications, daily notifications or both depending on your organization’s needs.
Weekly Notifications

Awesome Dashboard for Administrators

Every message to managers from our chatbot has an embedded link to the dashboard. The dashboard allows managers to easily approve or deny requests, manage notifications, and have a daily, monthly and yearly overview of the team’s vacations and days off.
