Some tasks, projects and milestones need to occur during a specific time period. The All Hands feature helps you lock a date or a series of consecutive dates to let teammates know that they need to be present and available on those days.

You need to be an Admin or Team Approver to book an All Hands.

To book an All Hands through the Pause web app:

Step 1: Go to the Calendar page on your dashboard.

Step 2: Click on Apply.

Step 3: Click on All Hands.

Step 4: Select the team you want to lock dates for.

Step 5: Select the start date and end date (only if you need a multi-day All Hands).

Step 6: Optionally, add a reason so your team has more information.

Step 7: Click on Submit.

Et voilà! A Lock icon will be displayed against all locked dates on everyone's Pause web app calendar.

Can someone book time off even if it collides with an All Hands?

Yes, they can! Locking dates with All Hands signifies that an important event is happening across teams. However, it's not locked hard and fast to allow for emergencies and changes in plans.

A team member can still book time off during an All Hands period — they'll be shown that their dates are clashing with an existing All Hands booking. It's then up to the Team Approver or Admin to grant or deny the request.
