Frequently asked questions

What is Catalog app? Do I have to use it for Time-off app?

The Catalog app is designed to simplify the storage and management of user details within your Slack workspace. It's a central repository for various user-related information that can be utilized by multiple apps. One such app that makes use of Catalog is Time-off.

Time-off relies on Catalog for handling user and team-related operations. Specifically, Time-off focuses on storing and managing leave-related information for users. Meanwhile, Catalog stores a broader range of generic user details that can be leveraged by various apps beyond just Time-off.

Before you can use Time-off to manage leave requests and related details for a user, you must first create or store that user's general information within Catalog. Once the user's information is created in the app, it can then be seamlessly added on to Time-off for specific time-off management purposes.
