Crisp and highly efficient

I really like using Pause. Has been super easy to use and very efficient so far.

Pros

I love the fact that this software is completely no-nonsense - serves it's purpose and provides just the right features. It's not overcrowded with lots of frills and complicated integrations. Also, allows us to go check inter and intra-team leaves, birthdays, etc. I could even set up slack reminders for my teammate's special days through Pause. Best part? The Pause bot on slack. Applying for leaves and even getting them approves is literally just a few clicks away. Oh, love the G-calendar integration feature as well. Awesome job, team Pause. Keep growing and helping people take a Pause.

Cons

So, there's this option where Pause will automatically update my status on Slack when I'm on leave - my only issue with this feature is that the leave message/status and emoji are not customizable. Even if it is, I could not find out how to customize it yet. You see when I'm sick and out of office, I wouldn't want a vacation emoji as my status.

Thanks Sanchari, we've passed on the feedback to our concerned team and hope to implement it soon. We appreciate your kind words!

Easy Interface. Thoughtfully done. Does one job the best.

1. Manage leaves records at ease 2. Integration with Slack works like magic for approval 3. Easily plan bandwidth of the team seeing the Calendar view

Pros

Quick onboarding. Well though through solving one purpose in the best way possible. Coming from a Design Studio, make the platform super intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

The functionality of the product is niche. That'll demand companies to use multiple uses for different use cases say like Payroll, etc.

Reasons for choosing Pause

It comes from Obvious (which is a known Design Studio)

Response from Obvious Ventures

Thanks Harish, we're glad you like the onboarding and that you find the platform easy to use. We're constantly working to improve, so for example, we hope you get the chance to try our new data export function that is designed to work well with the payroll system of your choice!

Pause for the win!

Pros

Before Pause, it was difficult to firstly request for leaves and secondly to keep track of how many you have left. Now, it makes all employee's lives so much easier. I use Pause from Slack and it tells me everything I know from how many leaves I have to which teammates are on leave and much more information. It also made us take more leaves which is always a good thing for the mental wellbeing of employees and culture of the company.

Cons

No cons at all! Works like a charm. I can't complain when it's worked 10/10 times.

Supremely easy to use

Pretty great! Highly recommend.

Pros

The web app is incredibly lightweight. Better than any other leave management tool I've come across. Cost-effective too.

Cons

I wish we could add a person to multiple teams.

Response from Obvious Ventures
