How to set up Pause for your organisation

The best way to get started with Pause is by following this step-by-step guide:

Step 1: 🎳 Set up your team

Divide your colleagues into their respective teams.

Step 2: 😎 Assign approvers

An approver is someone who can approve or decline leave requests from their reportees, and book time off for them, too.

Step 3: ✉️ Invite your teammates to Pause

By inviting your team to Pause, you can make it easier to communicate time off and encourage better planning.

Step 4: 🌴 Set up a leave policy

On Pause, you can start by setting up these basic leave types:

Deductible (Sick, casual, paid)

Non-deductible (burnout, cramps, maternity leave)

Step 5: 🏝 Set up public holidays for the whole organisation
