This article is a step-by-step guide for the Slack integration. For information on Microsoft Teams integration please visit our Microsoft Teams categories:

To approve or deny a requested leave, you need approval privileges. Once you’ve been made an Approver by an Administrator, you will be granted these privileges. Once you have approval privileges, there are two ways you can approve leave requests for your team members:
through our Slack bot;
through our online dashboard.

**Please note that you do not have to be an Administrator in order to become an Approver.

Once a team member requests a leave, you will automatically receive a notification from our Vacation Tracker bot which will allow you to approve or deny the leave request within Slack.

Once you approve or deny the leave request, the User will receive a response about their leave request.

To approve or deny a leave request through our online dashboard, login ( and you will be able to respond through the "Pending Requests" tab on the homepage of the dashboard or our "Manage Requests" page found on the left-hand side menu.

Please note: auto-approved leaves do not require approval or denial from an Approver. As an Approver, you would still receive a notification letting you know the user has added a leave request and that the leave request has been auto-approved.
