Your availability now front & center in Schedule

New in Schedule -- we added your availability to the overview of the whole office.

It's easy to spot time for a quick meeting on your calendar and make sure a preferred space is available.

Book directly from Schedule, finish details. and add invitees from the Event Composer.

Add Zoom links to your meetings

Last month we put the finishing touches on the beta Zoom integration, allowing you to easily create Zoom meetings right from our Dashboard. As an added bonus, Mobile users enjoy the ability to add or join Zoom meetings from their phones.

For more info on the integration, check out our guide to using Zoom in Robin.

We're rolling out the Zoom beta to organizations in the coming weeks. Interested in ringing in the New Year with the Zoom beta? Reach out and we’ll speed things up for you:

iOS Update Today & Coming Soon

A few folks reported cases of Room Displays that were sleeping on the job. As of today, you should start to see improvements with devices staying awake and Robin running in the foreground. Head over to the App Store to install the latest version.

What's next? We're almost ready to release features that support MDM. If you're anxiously awaiting Autonomous Single App Mode, this one is for you.

Fixed in November 2017

  • Patched an issue that caused some Chrome users with the plugin to experience sluggish performance
  • Fixed an issue that prevented deselecting a building or choosing all locations from System Status
  • Updated messages now reveal when Analytics doesn't have data to show (i.e. no calendars connected = no event data)
  • Some organizations were seeing single digits for total events and invitee counts. We know you had more than one meeting last month - total counts have been restored
  • Locations with 10+ Room Displays were unable to view System Status for all devices. We'll now retrieve every device
  • We changed device vital warnings from yellow to red, the international symbol of panic and alerts
  • We were throwing multiple error messages when adding a new calendar, if your plan did not support any more spaces. We now show to correct message
  • Handful of UX fixes, like improving the new Timeline so tooltips do not overlap
  • An ARE YOU SURE message will now pop up when applying default settings to all devices in a building
  • A small number of typos we're ashamed to admit have been resolved. "Dispay" is not a word, but our dismay at that typo is very real

When do you want it? Book Now

Our mobile app gets you one step closer to immediate satisfaction. While viewing an available space, you'll now see the option to Book now and create an event for 15, 30, or 60 mins.

Other updates include support for the fancy new iPhone X and fixes to the availability bar.

Time for a new Timeline

The new and improved timeline view lets you easily create new events by selecting available time windows from Schedule.

Hovering over existing events previews details like meeting title and invitee count.

Future efforts will make way for assigned seats and desk reservations, better grouping of spaces by level, and more information in the form of icons.

A quick look at the upcoming Desks timeline:

"Do not require check in" for VIP events

For events too important to remove from the calendar, Admins now have the ability to exempt certain meetings from the harsh reality of check ins.

Selecting Do not require check in when creating an event will ensure the Board Meeting next month isn't removed when no one checks in.

Over the next month or so, booking policies will allow Important Business Executives to skip check ins entirely. While no one in our office is above the law, we accept that some events or people are more special than others.

Investigating slowdown with Chrome extension

We've patched the issue causing some Chrome extension users to experience sluggish performance. Back to business as usual in your browser.

Apply display settings and booking rules to all spaces in a building

We're working on making management of hundreds of displays easier. You can now apply Room Display settings to every device in a building, at the same time.

Here are some of the settings you can adjust in bulk:

  • Tweak privacy settings and maintain mystery by masking meeting titles, invitees, or organizers.
  • Enable abandoned meeting protection to clean up the ghost meetings for the whole building.
  • Show/hide fullscreen color overlays for high visibility. Uniformity has never been easier.

Check out more settings from your building settings page: Settings>Office>Building
