A new way to signal trips to the office




Coordinating your work week is all about flexibility, which is why our new capability lets you signal intent to go to the office – without having to book a desk.


Let your team know your schedule, so you can plan for collaboration and optimize your time in the office.

Curious about who's going to be in the office that day? Want to book a workstation nearby a colleague? Need to share your plans with your team? We've got that covered, too.

Head on over to the "Schedule" tab on desktop or the "Pass" tab on mobile to start planning your week!

By the way: you can still access the room calendar view by going to Schedule > Meeting Rooms.

Simple check-ins with QR stickers just got easier




Habit-formation is about simple actions that are repeated in a consistent matter over time.

We know that organizations who leverage QR stickers as part of their check-in process have an average of 208% more active users than those who don't, and see a 25% increase in employee check-ins overall.


To help your hybrid strategy adoption, we are making it even easier for you to deploy stickers across your organization. Visit Manage > Stickers in Robin, select the office location you want to send them to, and watch the check-ins roll in.
