How do I approve or decline leave requests?

To approve or decline leave requests from a team, you have to be an approver or an admin.

On Desktop

Step 1: Click on the envelope icon on the right side of the application to view pending leave requests.

Note: Pending leave requests will also be visible on your calendar with a red dot next to them.

Step 2: Click on Decline or Approve to respond to a leave request immediately.

Pro tip: If you choose to decline the leave request, we suggest that you add a reason. It encourages transparency and doesn't leave your teammate in the dark!

On Slack

To use the Slack integration, please make sure that you have integrated Pause with Slack.

When someone from your team applies for leave, you'll get a Slack notification from the Pause bot in the left panel.

Step 1: Open this Slack notification to see details of the request.

Step 2: Click on Approve or Decline to respond to the request.

Once an admin approves or declines a leave request, the applicant will receive an email and Slack notification.
