To book a half-day, a full day, or a multiple-day leave using Vacation Tracker, visit the Dashboard or use the Vacation Tracker bot. Once the request is submitted, an Administrator or Approver will be notified to approve or deny the leave request instantly.
Set up notifications on Vacation Tracker for an entire organization or tailor them to each team. Customize the time of the notifications, and pick the Slack or Microsoft Teams channel on which they will appear. Weekly or daily notifications can be configured by an Administrator, to keep all team members informed about scheduled leaves.
The Administrator Dashboard provides a comprehensive overview. On the Vacation Tracker Dashboard, Administrators can easily approve or deny requests, set Leave Types, manage Notifications, and customize all Settings. Discover more Vacation Tracker features, or visit Helpdesk for more information.
When our team had 6 people, it was easy to keep track of who was out of office and when. As our team scaled to 30 people, it became difficult for us to keep track of when people in our team were away from the office and how many days off they had remaining.
It also became problematic that some team members had no idea when people who worked on the same projects as them took off on vacation or to go to a conference.
At first, our solution was to use an excel vacation calendar. Then we moved to Google Calendars. But both of these did not provide a solution to all the issues we were facing managing our team’s vacation calendar.
Our next step was to try to implement a more comprehensive solution in the form of an HR system. We quickly discovered that most of the HR systems out there have way too many features and as a result, were quite expensive considering we only wanted to use them as a leave management system for our team.
So finally, we decided to create our own vacation calendar for time off tracking. We agreed that we would provide integrations into other HR systems but that we wanted to maintain the simplicity of the product by focusing only on vacation calendar management and notifications.
The idea for Vacation Tracker was born.
