There are three ways to book time off on Pause — and they're all as simple as it can get!

**On the Pause browser app**

Step 1: Click on the Calendar button on the top navigation bar.

Step 2: Click on the Apply button on the right.



Step 3: Enter your Leave Type and the Start (and End Date) in the form that appears. You can also add a Reason if you wish.

Step 4: Click Submit when you're done.



Once you complete these steps, your request will be sent to your team approver. If you are an admin, your leave request will be auto-approved.

**On Slack**

To use the Slack integration, you need to have Pause integrated with Slack.

Step 1: In any Slack channel or chat, type /pause and hit enter.

Step 2: Once Pause responds with a list of options, click on the Apply for a Leave option.

Step 3: Enter your Leave Type and the Start and End Date. You can also add a Reason if you wish.

Step 4: Click Apply.

Your request will be sent to your Approver. If you're an admin, your request will be auto-approved.

You're all set!

You'll receive a notification via Slack and email when your leave request has been accepted or rejected. If there is no response from your team approver, your leave request will be automatically approved.
