The Pause alternative you've been looking for

Looking for a better time-tracking solution?

Presenting Vacation Tracker, a Pause alternative that’s built right into your favorite collaboration tool — whether that is Slack, Microsoft Teams, or Google Workspace.

Pause Alternative

Why switch to our Pause alternative?

Although Calamari has done a great job at helping teams simplify HR management,

Vacation Tracker is perfect for those looking to use dedicated leave management software to help support their existing HR processes. Here’s how we do it better.

Pause Alternative

It does not fully integrate with MS Teams

Microsoft Teams is of the most useful and popular team collaboration tools available in the market today. But if you don’t have a leave tracking solution built into this very tool, how can you work efficiently? Our integrations help you request and approve leaves, get notifications, and view your leave history — all in your workspace. 

Pause Alternative

You can't set up multiple locations or leave policies

Just like Vacation Tracker, Pause users can create multiple departments to help manage leaves within an organization. But what happens if users in these departments are dispersed across several locations? Every location has a set of unique leave policies. With our tool, you can create multiple locations and place all team members in the corresponding location, whether they are a part of the same team or not.

Pause Alternative

No data filtering options

Save yourself the hassle of swimming through a sea of leave information by filtering through it using customized Labels, Locations, Departments, or all three. Personalized Labels allow you to separate a set of users (regardless of their Location or Department) from the norm by assigning them all a Label. Now you can see exactly what you want to see, without struggling with information overload. 

Pause Alternative

No PTO accruals

Calculating accruals is often one of the most important and time-consuming aspects of leave management. While HRnest does not offer this feature, Vacation Tracker allows you to calculate and automate Accruals with just a few taps on your computer. Input the frequency of accrual (monthly, semi-monthly, or bi-weekly) and we’ll handle the rest.
