Connecting Payroll to the Slack integration


This feature is only available for businesses on plus plans.

The integration does not take into account public holidays, it is strictly based on how leave is entered into the system.

The permission hierarchy in Slack is as follows: Primary owner > owner > admin > member > guest. The user that enables the integration must have admin permissions or higher in the Slack workspace for statuses to be updated. For example, if an admin user enables the Slack integration then only members and guests will receive status updates. If the primary owner enables it then all users in the Slack workspace will receive status updates.

You can integrate your payroll file with Slack to have your employees status updated when they are on leave*. When an employee's leave starts, the Slack status will automatically be updated for that too. employee with the emoji and the status “I’m on leave” and the date they will return to work.

*This only applies to the following leave categories, annual leave, leave without pay and time in lieu.
