Microsoft Teams + Robin: Notifications

Keep your schedule running smoothly with Teams reminders for things like your upcoming desk reservation or scheduled meetings for the day. 


  • A Microsoft admin has installed the Robin app.

  • You've connected and authenticated your Robin user account with your Microsoft Teams account. 

How to set your notification preferences 

Once the Robin app is installed, you can choose the type of Robin notifications you want to receive in Teams. In Teams, open the Robin app and navigate to the Settings tab. Use the toggle to turn on/off the different notifications. 


Examples of Robin notifications in Teams

Desk notifications

If your office uses the desk check-in feature and a reservation is booked ahead of the confirmation window, then you'll receive a check-in notification at the start of the confirmation window. 

You can check in or release your desk reservation right from Teams. It will look something like this:


Assigned desks not supported yet

Only hot/hotel desk check-in notifications are supported today. We plan to add assigned desk check-ins in the future.

Meeting rooms & events notifications

You’ll receive a notification for every upcoming event, and if you’re the organizer and the event is attached to a space, you’ll see an option to confirm. 


Guest arrival notifications for the host

If you're hosting an office visitor, you'll receive a notification in Teams in real-time when your guest has arrived so you can easily meet and greet them.

We'll also notify you if your guest fails any office visitor requirements your office may have (e.g. health checkpoint), which automatically cancels their visit.
