The original event composer (legacy version)


  • Google Calendar
  • Office 365
  • Exchange

When you create or edit meetings in Robin's web dashboard, most of the time it will be through the event composer. It is accessible via any "Book Meeting" button on the site, or by clicking on an available time slot from the search page.


How it works

The event composer works just like your current calendar system, and any event you create with it will automatically sync back to the room's calendar. Same thing for editing existing events.

If you like the way you book meetings today, you don't have to use Robin to create new events, but most folks find it easier when room scheduling is involved.

Inviting others to your event

You can also invite others by entering their email address or (for other Robin users) their name. We'll try to auto-complete names based on past events and current user lists within Robin.



Video conferencing

Select your integrations (Zoom and BlueJeans) in the event composer to include a video conference link. 


Automatic conflict checks

This event composer has a few extra tricks that make it easy to avoid scheduling conflicts. Whenever you pick a time, Robin will automatically check to see if the room has a conflict and show you a "preflight" confirmation at the bottom of the window. If Robin knows of a fellow invitee's schedule conflict, it will also warn you of those too.

Book and check in

If you are booking an event that falls within the confirmation window a Book and Check In Now button will replace the Book Now button. Automatically checking you into the event upon booking the event.


Find a space

If this space is booked up for the time you would like to create an event, or you feel there's a better space to accommodate your event, just click the Find a space button on the bottom of the event composer. Clicking Find a space will redirect you to the office search page.

Minimize multiple windows

You can minimize the composer window and open additional ones. They will persist across pages, so you don't have to worry about losing your work while checking on a room's amenities, etc.
