How Can I Update User Avatars (Profile Pictures)?

Do you want to update your users' profile pictures in Vacation Tracker? Admins will be happy to know that this can be done with a few simple clicks!

Since our system works as an integration with Google Workspace, Microsoft Teams and Slack, as long as the user profile pictures (avatars) are updated in the workspace directory, they can be pulled into Vacation Tracker! Clients using our Email option can also upload their profile pictures!

Please note that at this time, only Admins will be able to update the user avatars when using Vacation Tracker with one of our integrations.

Here's how you can update the users' avatars:
