Discover The Incredible Features

Manage your requests and receive vacation reminders about your team's absences directly in Slack.

Perfect Integration

Taking notes about vacation requests in a spreadsheet is a thing of the past. With Vacation Tracker it has never been easier to manage your employees' time off requests.

Easy to submit and approve requests

It’s really easy for a team member to request a vacation, day off or a half-day with Vacation Tracker. Simply type in “/vacation” in any channel in Slack and our chatbot will help your team plan their next vacation or day off. Your team can also request sick days, conference days and many other types of out of office requests.

Whenever your team members request time off, your team administrators receive a notification in Slack which allows them to approve or deny vacations. They can also click to go to the dashboard to get an overview of all upcoming vacations before making a decision.

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.

Multiple Offices/Teams

If you have several offices in different locations, setting up your teams in Vacation Tracker is a snap. You can even have different administrators for each office to approve time off for their teams and set up holidays globally or for each team separately. You can also filter the calendar and dashboard by teams giving you only the information specific to that team.

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.

Set Your Team’s Holidays Quickly

Administrators can easily set up holidays for each team, whether they’re in multiple locations or not. The holidays can be set globally or for each team individually.

Our Vacation Tracker bot will make sure you’re notified each time a holiday is coming up so you know who will be out of the office.

Export Reports from Vacation Tracker as a CSV file

As an administrator, you can generate and export reliable reports as CSV files.

Through the administrator dashboard, you can generate them to fit your company’s needs, choose the time period you want and export. It has never been easier.

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.

You can access the administrator dashboard by going to https://dashboard.vacationtracker.io or by clicking “Open Dashboard” in Slack. In your dashboard, you can also manually set the number of days off for each team member, set multiple teams, check history, set vacations, set-up calendar feeds, and export your data into a CSV file.

After you add other administrators for Vacation Tracker, they will also be able to access the dashboard and approve requests even if they are not Slack administrators.

Calendar Feed

Need to synchronize your vacation information with Google Calendar, Outlook or iCal? No problem, Vacation Tracker allows you to pull information directly into your calendar of choice so that you are aware if somebody is on vacation when you try to book a meeting with them.
