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.
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.
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.
Why look for a TimeBot Alternative
TimeBot is a great Slack integration that makes managing your team’s leave management easier. However, in order to do it effectively, your team needs more customizable features. Every team is different, and with that being said, each team has different needs.
Vacation Tracker is a reliable TimeBot alternative which offers the possibility to easily request days off, half days and multiple days vacations.
It’s perfect both for remote teams and those in the office, as we have the possibility of setting different policies for teams in different locations. You can even set different administrators for each location.
In order to make it even more customizable, we’re offering the possibility to create up to 9 leave types which you can configure according to your needs.
Even though both Vacation Tracker and TimeBot both offer great leave management solutions, with Vacation Tracker you have more features which make the entire leave management even easier.
