To apply for a break in AttendanceBot, just type break for 10 mins or brb in 10 mins. You can set the duration as per your convenience.

Once you're break time is over, AttendanceBot will notify you, on Slack, asking you to punch back in.

You can either press the Yes button, if you are done with your break, or press the No, still on break button if you want to extend your break.

 AttendanceBot will then ask you to provide a time by which you want to extend your break. You can type the duration and press enter to confirm your new break time.

To apply for a lunch, just type lunch to the app and you will receive a confirmation.

The lunch duration can be set from your Settings Panel. You can refer to this article for the process of setting up lunch hours.


If you are back early from your break or lunch time, you can punch back in anytime(by typing in to the bot) and your lunch/break duration will be calculated accordingly.
