Are you missing our Vacation Tracker Bot from your Microsoft Teams app? No worries, we can help you install it!

Here are the steps to use:

From your Microsoft Teams app, go to the bottom left-hand side and select the Apps icon

Search for Vacation Tracker in the search bar



Once you see the Vacation Tracker app click on the box to begin the setup

A new window will open and you want to make sure to click the drop-down arrow on the Add button

Click on Add to a Team in order to add the bot for everyone that is active within Vacation Tracker (and to be able to set and view notifications).



Please note that if you click on the Add button the bot will be added solely for you and you will not be able to set or view notifications.

Select the team and the channel (you can select or type out the name of the team or channel) that your bot will be added to for future notifications. Vacation Tracker Admins can always update the channels and the notification settings through the online dashboard.

Once you are done, click on Set Up Bot to complete the setup

Once completed, you should be sent to the channel selected and there should be a small message letting you know that you have added Vacation Tracker to this team.

The Vacation Tracker bot will appear as a chat on the left-hand side of your Microsoft Teams app. You can enter Request Leave in the chat bar and our bot will respond



And you’re all set! You can now request leaves, view notifications, and approve requests (as an Approver) within your Microsoft Teams app!

Please note: due to Microsoft's policy if you have multiple teams and you would like multiple or all of the teams to use the bot you will have to add the bot for each team.
