This article is a step-by-step guide for the Slack integration. For information on Microsoft Teams integration please visit our Microsoft Teams categories: https://vacationtracker.crisp.help/en/

Set Up Multiple Teams Or Multiple Offices

To set up multiple teams, log into the Administrator Dashboard and click on “Teams”, in the side menu on the left. Your whole Slack organization will be set to one team by default. However, if you have multiple offices you can create additional teams.

For example, in the image below, you can see that this organization has 4 separate teams on Vacation Tracker. An Administrator has the capability of creating and editing the teams.



To create a new team, click on “Create new team”, in the top right corner. Enter a name for your team and choose the team members who belong to that team. Team members need to be active Vacation Tracker users.

Select Roles

Then, you can choose the Administrators and Approvers for that team. Please note that team members can only belong to one team while an Administrator can be part of multiple teams. Moreover, a team doesn’t necessarily need to have an Approver. Yet, it could also have multiple Approvers, which may be helpful for a bigger team.



Select Holidays For Multiple Offices

For teams working across multiple offices around the world, statutory holidays or traditional celebrations may take place on different days. Nevertheless, Vacation Tracker accounts for these important differences. In the “Holidays” tab of the menu on the left-hand side, you can import the holidays for any country in the world. Then, you can apply the holidays to all users, or only to a selected team.

Holidays can be imported in bulk, but they can also be added manually. You can see which holidays apply to which teams. For instance, in the example below, Unicorn Delivery seems to have many more holidays than Teleport Museum.



Select A Team To View Their Vacation Dashboard

In the main Dashboard view, any Vacation Tracker user can flip through the available views by selecting, in the top right corner, the Team they wish to view. Once the team is selected, the Dashboard “Year view” will be updated with only that team’s leave information.

It’s a great and quick way to see how many people are away on a given day. It can also help to visualize when some of the most popular vacation clusters are.



View Team Members & Statuses

Finally, in the Team Members tab of the Dashboard, Approvers and Administrators can view all of the active Vacation Tracker users. From here, they can access each individual’s profile to check on their leaves statuses, including remaining days and their complete leave histories.
