Slack + Robin: Notifications

Stay on top of your reservations and keep your schedule running smoothly with Robin Slack notifications.  


Set your notification preferences  

Choose the type of notifications you want to receive from Robin in Slack. You can manage your personal notifications under your user settings. 

Navigate to your Avatar > User settings > Notifications. 


Types of notifications

Flexible desk check-ins

If your office uses the desk check-in feature and a hot/hotel reservation is booked ahead of the confirmation window, then the reservee will receive a check-in notification at the start of the confirmation window. 

You can check in or release your desk reservation right from Slack. 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

Need a reminder for your meetings and events? We’ve got you covered with 3 types of Slack notifications.

A. When you're attending a meeting, you’ll receive a reminder message in Slack 5-10 minutes before it begins. 


B. When you're the organizer of the meeting, you'll receive a reminder to confirm your event for that meeting space. This is a very helpful reminder if your office enforces the Abandoned Meeting Protection covered below. 


C. If your meeting is automatically canceled because no one confirmed/checked in, we'll let you know. This only applies to offices that enforce the Abandonded Meeting Protection feature.


Guest arrival notifications for the host

If you're hosting an office visitor, you'll receive a notification in Slack 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.
