Avoid duplicate reservations with new desk policies





We've added two new desk reservation policies to help keep the office running smoothly:

  1. Allow overlapping reservations (on by default). Turn off to prevent people from booking more than one desk at a time in the same office.
  2. Restrict reservations to working hours (off by default). When turned on, people may only reserve a desk during the hours a building is open.

Admins can configure both of these policies via Manage > Offices > [YOUR BUILDING] > Desk Policies

Overlapping reservations

Set capacity limits for flexible desk reservations





Today we're releasing an update to help workplace teams manage capacity by limiting the number of bookable desks available per day.

How does it work?

  • Once the limit of flexible desks are booked, no more reservations can be made.

  • As reservations are made, the Daily Roster updates and summarizes the projected utilization by day to keep teams up to date.

  • Assigned desks are already counted towards the floor capacity since they are used for people who come into the office 4-5 days a week.

Employee experience

As people plan trips back to the office, they will see how many desks are available and if capacity has been met on both the web and mobile apps.

Get started with flexible capacity management.

Bulk upload a list of people to a Group





Admins and users with permissions to manage Groups can now bulk import a list of people via CSV.

Bulk uploads make it easy to get started with Groups and keeping them up to date. When people are added to a Group they will also be invited to the Robin organization.

People can now see office hours and how many desks are available





Workplace visibility is essential when people plan their next trip to the office. We've added two new pieces of information to the web booking process to keep people informed:

  1. Office hours to help people know when the office is open and when they can come in.
  2. How many desks are available.

To set your building's office hours, get started with this guide.

A better desk booking experience for the web dashboard





We've made some significant upgrades to the desk booking experience on the web dashboard.

You can now complete health checkpoints and check-in for your upcoming desk reservation from the web dashboard.

We've also made much it easier to see what desk you've reserved across the platform with a "Your Desk" pin.

If someone reserves a desk outside of the set office hours they will see an alert before booking the desk.

These upgrades are live today. Get started with desk check-ins here.

Bulk upload a list of people for easier pass management





Admins and users with permissions to manage office passes can now bulk import a list of people for a pass via CSV.

Bulk uploads make it easy to get started with the passes and keeping them up to date. When people are added to a pass they will also be invited to the Robin organization.

To get started, go to Settings -> Access to manage or build a new pass.

Coordinate trips to the office with your team





Today we're releasing some updates to make it easier for people to coordinate days to head to the office.

The two main reasons people want to go back to an office are:

  1. In-person collaboration
  2. Socializing and seeing teammates in person

With the new mobile update you can now set up a team of the people you work with regularly, and see when they will be in the office.

Robin now supports check-ins for all desk types, including assigned desks.





We know that with new types of work styles and seating arrangements, it’s now more important than ever to know who’s in and which desks are in use.

That’s why we’ve rolled out check-ins across all desk types in Robin (including flexible and assigned).

How does it work?

  • Have employees check in via mobile, web, and email (one click, no login required)

  • See check-in responses on the map and daily roster

Office Pass: The easy way to adopt hybrid work





Office Pass is a platform-wide update that makes managing these flexible workplaces possible in Robin. It revamps the employee experience on mobile and includes updates to admin management allowing workplace teams to confidently give more decision-making power to their employees.



  • A brand new mobile experience designed to help workplace teams introduce hybrid work. These updates give employees full access to the workplace before arriving. Useful for deciding when (or if) to integrate the office into your week.
  • Pass Management gives admins new ways to organize teams and schedule customized access to the office by day.
  • A daily office roster shows admins which people are in the office, and which steps each person completed prior to arriving — including health checkpoints for safety, verifying desk reservations, and managing capacity requirements.
  • Simpler in-person desk booking with “tap-to-book” interactions (beta) powered by touchless-enabled stickers you can deploy and grow without expensive hardware.

These updates are just the start of our 2021 roadmap for hybrid work. Learn more in the announcement →
