Use Teamdeck's leave management features

Vacations and any other time off periods for your particular employees are called vacations in Teamdeck.

You can manage vacations by going to the settings tab in the upper menu bar and picking vacations from the list. 


There are two ways to add vacations:

1. Click on the plus sign in the bottom-right corner of the Vacations tab in Settings. Specify the person that is going on vacation and the dates. You can also pick a vacation reason and period (e.g. full day or half a day). When you’re ready to save, confirm it by clicking add new

Note: See below for an instruction on how to add vacation reasons and periods.

2. You can also add vacations straight from the Calendar. Scroll to the person you want to add vacations for. Go to the vacations row and right-click on the day you want to add vacation for (or select a range of days). When a drawer appears, add a vacation reason and period. Click save vacation when you’re ready.


Just like with adding vacations, there are also two ways to edit them:

  • Go to Settings and then Vacations. You can edit the vacations right from the list view. Simply click on the person and pick a vacation you want to edit.
  • Another way to edit the vacations is to update them in the Calendar view. All you have to do is click on a vacation day and a drawer will appear. Update the data and click save


Go to Settings and then Vacations. Click on a chosen person and pick a vacation from their list. Then click the bin icon in the bottom left corner of a given vacation. 

You can also remove vacations when you’re in the Calendar view. Click on the vacation you wish to remove, a dialog box will show up. Then click the bin icon in the bottom left corner. The trash bin icon is also available on hover.


Regular team members can request vacations using Teamdeck. As an owner or manager you can accept or reject these requests. One of the ways is to pick a given vacation request in the Vacations tab in Settings and click accept or reject. The team member who sent this request will be notified about your decision. 

Note that the bell icon in the upper right corner of the app will show you if you have any unread notifications. Click on it to see a list. Each vacation request comes with two options: accept and reject. Click the one you choose and the team member who sent it will receive an update with your decision.

You can also see a list of requests when you go to Dashboard and scroll to the Notifications tab. 


You can go to Advanced in the Settings tab to modify a list of vacation reasons and periods.

Vacation reasons are the reasons behind taking time off, such as sick leave or parental leave. As a superadmin you can modify a default list to add your own vacation reasons. Additionally, you can specify whether a given type of vacation is paid or not. Remove a vacation reason/period by clicking the icon to the right of each entry.
