There are 2 ways to look at a absence data

  1. Summary - these are quick summaries that are showed in slack
  2. Reports - these are elaborate reports that get generated as a CSV file that can be downloaded and manipulated using a spreadsheet program like MS excel or Google Sheets.
  3. Coming soon - reporting dashboards (beta in Q1 2017 and general availability in Q2 2017). Let us know if you want to get on the beta by connecting with us via "dialm".


Summary

  • To get your absence summary, say "summary"
  • To get a quick summary of a colleague or a reportee say "summary @UserName"
    • While managers can see leave types for their reportees along with recent as well as upcoming leaves, when looking at your colleagues leaves, you would only get to see upcoming leaves/wfh without knowing the exact leave types.
  • You can ask a question like "Is @UserName in tomorrow?" to know their availability for tomorrow or "status @UserName" to know their availability today.


Reports

  • To get your absence report for the current month say "report". This report will include the leaves that you have approved and that of your reportees as well (if you are a manager). 
  • To get your absence report for all time, simply type "full report".
  • Managers can get their team's current month's report by saying "team report" and their team's report for all time by saying "full report". 
  • HRs and team administrator can get the entire company's current month's report by saying "team report" and the entire company's report for all time by saying "full report". 
  • All managers/HRs/Administrator can also say "Team report from dd-mm-yyyy to dd-mm-yyyy"  to get the entire company's report for the specified time. Note that dates need to be in this specific format.


Status

  • Anyone can say "status @username" or "is @username in on monday?" to get a quick availability check inside slack. This is a very light weight version to get a yes or no answer for a specific date
