Introducing the New Leave Feature
Share this

Hello, fellow users of Time Bot! Today, we have some exciting news to share with you. We’ve just rolled out a massive new feature that’s going to revolutionize how you manage your time and leaves within the Time Bot ecosystem. Say hello to the brand new Leave feature!

Up until now, Time Bot has been helping you track your time in Slack, create invoices, and manage the invoicing process seamlessly. But we knew there was something missing, and after much hard work and dedication, we’re thrilled to present the Leave feature that enables you to request and manage leaves directly through Slack!

A Sneak Peek at the Leave Feature

With the new Leave feature, you can request various types of leaves, such as personal leave, vacation, sick leave, parental leave, and more. Gone are the days of sending countless emails or dealing with clunky third-party systems to request time off. Time Bot makes it incredibly easy to manage your leaves right where you work - in Slack!

Let’s dive into how the Leave feature works from both the administrator’s and user’s perspectives.

Administrator Perspective

As an administrator, you can configure the Leave feature by setting up your company holidays. This ensures that when employees request leaves, it automatically takes into account any public holidays or company-off days. You have the flexibility to add holidays for all countries, making it ideal for remote teams with global members.

User Perspective

From the user’s perspective, requesting leave has never been simpler. You can log in to Time Bot as an employee and navigate to the Leave section. Here, you’ll choose the type of leave you need, select the dates, add a note if necessary, and click on “Request Leave.” Voila! Your leave request is on its way to your manager.

Approval Process

Once a leave request is submitted, it lands in the hands of the designated leave management administrator. They receive a notification in Slack and can then approve or decline the request. If the request is approved, you, as the employee, receive a notification confirming the approval.
