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.

Can I implement different leave policies for different offices or teams?

You have the flexibility to apply multiple leave policies on App config. Once you've set up these policies, you can then use the Assign policy to employees workflow to allocate a specific policy to individual employees based on their location, seniority, or department.

Can I define unique leave types with distinct rules?

Yes, you can customize leave types and their rules to suit your organization's needs. Simply create a copy of your leave policy in Documents tab, or modify the properties for existing ones. After making your adjustments, be sure to apply your changes.

What is the AI agent, and how does it assist in leave management?

AI agent acts as a virtual assistant for your leave management tasks. When you send a message to the AI agent channel, the AI Agent springs into your policy to assist you. You can also ask agent to suggest you a workflow that suits to your message. For instance, if you ask Check Amy's profile, AI agent replies to your message including a button that guides you to the workflow matching your query. Moreover, if you include parameter details in your message, such as Request PTO for 2 days the AI Agent will automatically fill in parameters for your requests and streamline the process of managing leave requests and inquiries.
