Workweek updates: Streamlined desk booking and more flexibility for employees
Kate, Product Marketing Manager
When you visit your Robin account today, you may notice a few changes to the homepage experience. The changes outlined below are a direct result of customer feedback and feature adoption trends, and we're excited to roll them all out for improved employee and admin experiences:
Streamlined desk booking
The main button on the workweek view now helps employees book desks more quickly. We consistently see that at least 3 in 4 people come to Robin to book a desk, so this simplifies the process. Robin will even recommend your last desk booked!
Once a desk is booked, Robin will count employees as “in” the office, and automatically update their status as “In Office” (see bullet #3 for more details).
A choice of Robin homepage
Customize the Robin homepage that works best for you: choose either to see who's in this week, or to show your office map.
Indication of working locationbased on *new* status dropdown
In this first release, the dropdown options are In Office and Remote.
In-office: This is a way for people to indicate an intention to go to the office, without having to book a desk.
If an employee books a desk, their status will automatically be updated to In Office.
A new home for user settings
User settings will all live under an employee's avatar > User Settings.
Settings include things like homepage, notification and general schedule preferences.
