Here's a guide to the fields in the desk history export:

  • Organization name: This is the name of the organization where the desk reservation took place.
  • Location name: The name of the location the desk resides in.
  • Level name:  The level the desk resides in.
  • Space name: The name of the space the desk resides in.
  • Zone name: The name of the group the desk resides in.
  • Desk ID: The ID number of the desk in the Robin system.
  • Desk name: The human readable name of the desk. This is the desk name that appears in search results and other parts of the user interface.
  • Status: Cancelled or Confirmed desk reservation.
  • Type: Hot, Hotel, or Assigned. 
  • Start: When the desk reservation started. Reported in UTC time.
  • End: When the desk reservation ended. Reported in UTC time.
  • Hour duration: This is the duration of the desk reservation specified in hours down to 2 decimal places. This includes hot, hotel or "reverse hoteled" (shared desks) reservations. This field will be blank for assigned desks. 
  • Creator name: Name of the person who made the reservation.
  • Creator email: Email of the person who made the reservation.
  • Assignee name: Name of the person who the desk reservation was for.
  • Assignee group(s): All groups that the assignee is associated with. If a user is associated with more than one group, the group names will be separated by commas. 
  • Assignee email: Email of the person who the desk reservation was for. This includes non- Robin users who are assigned a desk by an email address only. 

What does the status “cancelled” or “confirmed” mean in the context of desks?

Unlike spaces, desks do not have a mechanism (e.g. room displays) that requires users to check into a desk to confirm their seat reservation. If a desk reservation is not canceled then it is marked as “Confirmed”.

A desk reservation is marked as “Cancelled” if it was ended by the user or admin before it occurred. Or if it was ended a few seconds after it was created.

Example 1:

  • John makes a hotel desk reservation on April 01 to sit in Desk 05 from April 10 to April 13.
  • On April 08, John cancels the reservation.
  • The reservation status is Cancelled.

Example 2:

  • Sally makes an assigned seat reservation for Jane at Desk 10, set to begin on October 12th.
  • On October 11th, Sally decides she wants to put Jane at Desk 05 instead and ends Jane’s upcoming assignment for Desk 10.
  • The reservation status for Jane at Desk 10 is Cancelled.

Example 3:

  • Bill is reserving a desk and accidentally clicks on the wrong desk.
  • Bill quickly clicks on the desk icon again & selects "End reservation".
  • Bill’s 3-second reservation status is marked as Cancelled.


If a desk reservation ends before it’s scheduled end time, the end time is updated to reflect the actual length of the reservation.

Example 1:

  • Fred books a hot desk from 9am to 4pm. Fred decides to end the reservation at 3:30pm.
  • The report reflects the updated end time of 3:30pm.

Example 2:

  • George assigns a desk to Ron. The end time is recorded as January 19th, 2038
  • George then removes Ron from the assigned desk, because Ron moved to another team.
  • The end date of Ron’s reservation reflects the actual end date of the reservation when Ron was removed from the desk.
