How Do I Cancel My Upcoming Leave Request?

Something happened and you need to cancel your leave? We hope it’s not your long awaited holiday

When this situation occurs, you can cancel your leave by:

Using our - Online Dashboard
Using Vacation Tracker Integration - Slack
Using Vacation Tracker Integration - Microsoft Teams

Dashboard (also for Email and Google Workspace)

Log in to your dashboard:

On the right-hand side, click on your name or avatar and select My Profile

On your profile page, click on the Leaves tab. Once there, you should see the option to cancel the upcoming leave.

Your request will be canceled and your Approver will be notified.


To cancel your leave through Slack, follow these steps:

Activate the Vacation Tracker bot by typing /vacation and push enter

Once our bot responds select See More Options

Find and click on Manage Leaves

When you see the leave you wish to cancel, just click on Cancel Request. A pop-up will appear for you to confirm your decision.

Upon confirming your cancelation, your Approver will receive a message informing them of the cancelation.

Microsoft Teams

To cancel your leave through MS Teams you would cancel the leave by going to your My Profile tab. To access the tab including your profile information follow these steps:

Open your MS Teams application and click on Chats on the left-hand side

Find the Vacation Tracker chat and click on it (you can also do this by searching for Vacation Tracker in the search box at the top of your MS Teams)

Once you open the bot, select the My Profile tab at the top of the page

On the My Profile tab you should see your profile information just as you would on the online dashboard; to cancel a pending leave or a scheduled leave you would use the "Cancel Leave" button or the red X on the right-hand side of the leaves.

Your request will be canceled and your Approver will be notified.

If you'd like to update the leave request dates, there's no need to cancel the request; You can simply use the Edit option. More information can be found here: How Do I Edit My Pending or Upcoming Leave?

Please note: if the leave is in the past or it is a current leave, an Admin will need to cancel the leave for you using the online dashboard, unless the option to allow editing and requesting past leaves is enabled in the Leave Policy for that Leave Type.
