First time setting up an office with Robin? You're in exactly the right place. Follow this checklist and you'll be up and running in no time.
Build & customize your office building
Before jumping in, do you have multiple office locations to set up and manage? Appoint dedicated Office Admins in Robin to delegate office location-specific tasks. [Enterprise only]
[All plans] During the onboarding process, Robin will prompt you to add your building. Then you can add more building details later (e.g., working hours, timezone, and address).
[All plans] During the onboarding process, Robin will prompt you to add floors to your building and submit floor plans to be converted to Robin maps for each floor.
Pro tip: Turn on the abandoned meeting & desk protection policies. These allow desk & meeting space reservations to be automatically canceled if no one checks in by a certain time. This helps free up office resources for others to use and gives office managers a better understanding of office utilization.
[Teams & Enterprise plans] Customize your organization with branding.
[All plans] Add your own custom amenities options under Manage > Amenities so users can easily find exactly which rooms or desks are equipped with the tools they need.
[Enterprise only] Do you need to restrict who is allowed to sit where or have special roles for managers who can assign and reserve seats for others? Set up groups and permissions.
[All plans] Need a way to manage office visitors? Use our guest management feature found under the Visits tab in the web dashboard to pre-register guests, notify the host of guest arrival, and monitor visitors with the visitor log.
[All plans] Share office updates, policies, & events with employees in real-time with our Workplace Announcement feature!
[All plans] Bring people together, creating a social atmosphere and a sense of community by creating and joining office activities!
[Teams & Enterprise] Do you want to understand what drives employees to come into the office and how to make it a place folks go to do their best work? Or managing a new facility and curious how employees are liking it? Check out our Workplace Experience survey here!
