How scheduling vacations in Teams can streamline your entire company
ABC of Business Management
In his book, The Myth of Entrepreneurship, Michael Gerber advises that a company should be run based on rules that allow it to function even if a key employee leaves or the owner changes. It’s great advice, but how do you put it into practice?
If you own a business and employ people, you know how many procedures, policies and rules it takes to manage it properly. It applies to everything from procuring supplies for the office, and assigning tasks, to monitoring vacation days.
The bigger the team, the messier it gets. This is when solutions such as CRM software, ERP systems, etc., come to the rescue. Many things require planning and coordination, and many subsystems need to be added.
Yet few people know that Office 365 and agile Teams software are enough. Let us tell you how we structured our company’s vacation scheduling process with an app in just three days!
Case study of creating a vacation planning app
Project at a glance:
Challenge: office organization A to…Teams?
You may not believe it, but managing leaves has been a considerable challenge for our team until recently. It’s a seemingly simple task, but TTMS team is growing fast and new people are coming in all the time.
Until recently, not everyone knew how to submit time-off requests.
Idea: Application for time-off management
Hubert who is responsible for Microsoft Power Apps implementations came up with an idea of how to solve this problem easily and at a low cost.
“Since we all use Microsoft Teams, why not use it to manage the business? Maybe it would be possible to streamline and automate the leaves scheduling process.
The Vacation Days app was created in Power Apps for Teams using Dataverse for Teams. It is connected to the group calendar in the SharePoint,” says Hubert Ferenc, PowerApp Lead at #PowerTeam TTMS.
Thanks to a simple application created in 72 hours, we managed to solve several business management problems:
- It is now clear to everyone that to request a vacation day, all they need to do is enter the app, select the dates, fill out a short form and submit it.
- The request always finds its way to the right person – the direct supervisor.
- The calendar is now filled in properly.
Additionally, we’ve integrated a bot that sends notifications about app events.
