Schedule announcements for your office




Screen Shot 2022-03-24 at 3.48.43 PM.png

Admins can now schedule announcements, making it much easier to plan for future events, updates and notifications about the office.

How are teams using announcements?

  1. 🏀 Office events like a pizza party or March Madness spirit days
  2. ✅ Policy and guideline changes for the office
  3. 🚧 Alerts for renovations, ex. "Floor 1 Bathrooms offline for the day"
  4. 🐶 "Dog Days" for people to bring their pups to the office
  5. 🚫 Office closures

Admins can also set announcements to archive past a specific date, ensuring people only see the timely notifications. To set up an announcement go to Manage > Announcements or use this guide.

Easily share your desk reservation

You can now share a link of your desk reservation, making it easier than ever to coordinate a day in the office with a coworker, friend, or team.

Sharing a reservation link is perfect for planning in-office meetings, workshops, sprint planning or other collaborative events.

To give it a try, there is a pop-up after a reservation is made. Copy the link and share in Slack, Teams or other collaboration tools. When clicked, the link will open Robin to the date and reservation on the map.

Announcements now support rich text

Admins can now style announcements with bold or italicized text, bulleted lists and links.

Styling will stick when you copy & paste into Robin from another tool, too.

Announcements can be managed from Manage > Announcements. Learn more about announcements here.

Collect feedback about your office





We've introduced a new way to collect feedback from employees about the office experience.

Employees who recently went to the office are asked to rate their experience and submit feedback on the web or mobile. The results are shared in a new section of Analytics called the Experience report.

Sort feedback by date, building, or rating. Filter for a comprehensive view or easily export a summary card for sharing internally.

Screen Shot 2022-03-14 at 3.50.55 PM.png

Admins can enable this feature by location under Manage > Surveys > Experience Survey. To learn more about, we have this guide.

Add QR codes to improve the flexible desk experience

We've added an easy way to grab a desk at the office, stickers.

With Robin's stickers, employees can quickly grab a desk, see its status, swap their reservation, or check-in for the day by scanning the QR code or tapping it with NFC.

Adding stickers can significantly improve check-in rates for organizations, and Admin's can set a rule for "local-only" check-in with stickers, too.

Stickers can now be purchased and shipped globally. For purchasing, reach out to your Account Manager. To learn more about stickers, use this guide.

Create and manage a private group




Admins can now create a group and mark it as private on all Robin plans.

Only Admins will be able to view the group and its members.

Admins can also easily select existing groups to be marked as private, too. Select the checkbox next to the group and mark them as private.

Improving the mobile login experience




We’ve (greatly) improved the mobile login experience.

Now people can enter their work email addresses when logging into the app if they have a Robin account already set up.

Teams who do not pre-populate accounts with user accounts will still need to enter their Organization name for the first login only.


Guests can now self-register on the arrival display




Screen Shot 2022-03-10 at 2.38.51 PM.png

Guests can now walk up to an arrival display to register themselves as a visitor to the office. Guests will complete a form, complete any needed health checkpoints and be entered into the visitor roster in Robin for visibility.

To start managing visitors to the office, start with this guide. To set up an arrival display, go to Manage > Devices.

Better visibility for announcements

We’ve added a new home for viewing announcements as an employee. Now you can revisit an announcement you’ve acknowledged or read on the web and mobile apps to make sure they’re always up to date.

Individual announcements can now be marked as a priority, meaning they require an acknowledgment to dismiss. For messages that are not marked as a priority, they show up in the announcements inbox.

Screen Shot 2022-03-10 at 2.15.15 PM.png

To set up an Announcement go to Manage > Announcements.

Add a Microsoft Teams link when booking a room
