Discover what's new with Office App's latest product update, including new features and integrations!

November Product Update: Check-in and release, Ping SSO, and More!

New features

The following new functionalities are now available in Office App:

Health & Safety Questionnaire

We developed a Health & Safety questionnaire that helps you comply with health and safety regulations. By answering a few basic questions, you will know that your employees will only visit the office when they are happy, healthy, and able to work safely with others.

Check-in and release – desks and meeting rooms

To maximize the efficiency of your building’s space, we’ve created a check-in and release functionality for desks and meeting rooms. You can also choose to automatically send push reminders to employees who haven't checked in after a certain amount of time has passed. This reminder allows them to keep or release their booking, should their plans change.

Here's how it works:

  • Office App retrieves a list of TAG IDs from your organization
  • TAG IDs are matched with desks and rooms
  • Users book desks via Office App – or rooms via Exchange 365
  • Users check in to a booked room via Office App
  • Push reminders can be sent to users who do not check in on time

Web desk booking

By launching a web version of our Desk Booking feature, we’ve exponentially increased Office App’s reach and availability. This means there’s no more switching between platforms to effectively plan your day – Office App will come to you, instead of the other way around.

Booking rights

Our new Desk Booking functionality helps employees adjust to social distancing with bookable desks that adhere to local health guidelines. Simultaneously, it allows employers to define, develop, and maintain their hybrid work strategies. Building admins can set booking limits to ensure their office remains in compliance with internal or external health and safety regulations. Admins can also use our extensive data dashboards to monitor how desks are being used in real-time, providing them with the insights they need to make data-driven decisions regarding hybrid work.

New integrations

The following integrations have been added to Office App, better enabling our users to access the services they know, use, and love:

Ping for SSO

Ping for single-sign-on (SSO) is now available via Office App. Domains or email addresses linked to Ping SSO are able to quickly and easily sign in to their organizations via a simple, three-step process:

  • Enter your work email address
  • Click the link in your validation email
  • Validate your identity via Ping MFA

Gallagher and Doordeck access control integrations

We’ve partnered with Gallagher and Doordeck for access control integrations, providing smart, keyless entry to designated buildings or offices quickly and conveniently.

Office App continually strives to give you the best possible workplace experience. Stay tuned for next month’s product updates, when we’ll have new features, integrations, and other functionalities that work to provide your employees with a Happy Office Life.

Office App is committed to providing our users with the features and integrations they need to make their office lives easier, safer, and more productive as we develop and maintain strategies for hybrid work. Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to in the past months.
