Pros
The serene graphics and soothing sounds instantly helped me relax and refocus my mind. I appreciated the customizable options that allowed me to tailor the experience to my personal preferences.
Easy to apply for longer leaves - selection of duration is easy to use. Public holidays being added are a nice touch - and the slack bot is very useful.
When we login in to application, the interface looks very cool. After working on multiple professional tabs when we see something like this our mind and heart feels good.
Cons
No leaves mails from the team, as everything directly goes on Pause. No manual tracking who is on leave.
No support for work from home requests/status. UI in slack is confusing.
So, there's this option where Pause will automatically update my status on Slack when I'm on leave - my only issue with this feature is that the leave message/status and emoji are not customizable.

Overall Good experience

Reviewed a year ago

The fact I like most about Pause is that I don't have to switch out of Slack for anything. I am a manager and 7 people report to me, so switching between apps would've been a great hassle but pause makes it extremely easy for me to approve leaves, view and apply for my time off and also track which members of my team are on leave in a given timeframe!

Pros

Before Pause, my remote team used to track leaves manually. This used to create a ton of confusion between colleagues partly due to time zone differences. With Pause, we now have one portal to track all leaves and time offs ensuring everyone knows everybody's availability and tasks get completed smoothly. It also integrates right into the calendar making it so easy to use every day.

Cons

The Pause website can be better mobile-responsive

Awesome Product with Amazing Features

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience in pause is awesome I can easily apply for leave and check which one is on leave through calendar . so on the basis of this I can plan something 1day leave or a trip

Pros

Everything in pause is awesome you can see your pending leave, you can see the birthday and work anniversary of other member , you can see how many sick, casual and earned leave is pending the calendar is awesome in pause

Cons

As a daily user in pause the thing I notice when a user apply for leave a notification ping on the approver system but anyhow he/she missed to see the notification so in that case pause should provide and reminder that remind the approver to approve or decline the leave.The employee don't go again and again to the approver to approve his leave.

The most economic option out there but lacking crucial functionality

Reviewed a year ago

It's a nice application that works well if you are just looking for a time off request tool, but it's buggy, it doesn't work at times, and the interface doesn't always work as you would expect it to.

Pros

It's extremely easy to use and integrates seamlessly into Slack.

Cons

I never was able to get the accruals to work properly, days wouldn't properly add up every month and I ended up having to inventorize them manually periodically which defeated the purpose of the app

A User-Friendly Leave Management Solution

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

One of the standout features of Pause is its seamless integration with Slack, which makes it easy for teams to manage their leave requests and approvals without having to leave their communication platform.

Cons

While Pause has a lot of great features, there are a couple of areas where it could improve. Firstly, the privacy settings could be enhanced to provide more control over who can see your leave requests, description, and remaining leaves. It can be a concern for some users that anyone on the team can see this information. Secondly, the loading time of Pause Home is slow, which is frustrating for users who need to access the platform frequently.

Following a positive encounter with Pause

Reviewed a year ago

Overall It was great, it got us started from zero (nothing in place) really quickly. I liked the emojis integrations with the Pause which will make it more appealing.

Pros

It is a really fantastic program that made it simple to approve or deny requests. The possibilities are simply too fantastic, even while applying for a leave. It's easy to track & see if our team is available or on leave. To check their availability For scheduling meetings and discussing something.

Cons

I think the online version could be enhanced because I used it more frequently because of the Slack integration. Also, I wish we could add one person to more than one team.

Vendor response

Thank you for your detailed feedback! We're thrilled that Pause is making a positive impact on your time-off management.
