Set a company-wide vacation

Want to give your whole team a break from submitting Check-ins during the upcoming holiday break? Don't want people to be expected to submit Check-ins during an active review cycle? Use our company-wide vacation setting to excuse your team from filling out Check-ins.

Only account administrators can create company-wide vacations.

✏️

Note

The sole purpose of vacations in 15Five is to skip Check-ins, not as a point of reference for your team to see when upcoming days off are. If you set a vacation range that overlaps with two reporting periods, both of those Check-ins will be skipped. Likewise, if you have a company holiday on Monday and put that holiday in as a company-wide vacation, your Check-in for that whole reporting period will be skipped (even if you're in the office for the rest of the week).


Set a company-wide vacation

If they would still like to fill out that Check-in for any reason, they can do so by clicking 'Undo skip settings'. After clicking on 'Undo skip settings' the Check-in will reopen.
