Office App Product Update – December 2021

RSVP from the web app, see when colleague are in the office, data overview improvements – new this month in Office App!

Office App Product Update – December 2021

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 they develop and maintain strategies for hybrid work.

Here’s a look at what’s new for December 2021.

New features

The following new functionalities are now available in Office App:

Who’s in the Office?

As employees return to the office – or continue working within hybrid work strategies – we have received increased demand for a feature that offers a quick, convenient way to see who will be working in the office on a given day or time. In addition to easy oversight regarding occupancy levels, the new Who’s in the Office? feature allows just that, helping employees plan ahead to ensure their office experience is as meaningful, social, and collaborative as possible – and avoiding the nasty surprise of an empty office or absent team. You will also save time, as you no longer need to check in with individual colleagues to learn about their daily working plans.

Using the Who’s in the Office? feature, you can:

  • View who is in the office on a specific date and time based on desk bookings
  • Create a private or public booking
  • Search for a specific colleague (currently in the web app only)

Community Restrictions

We understand that some organizations adhere to strict communication policies. As such, we have enabled the restrictions of Community posts, “likes,” comments – or a combination of the three. Admins on Office App’s iOS, Android, and web versions are able to enable or disable these restrictions quickly and easily via the app – and will always be able to post important updates themselves, should the need arise.

Event RSVP – Web

We have further extended the Office App web app, enabling you to RSVP for building events.

Data improvements

The following improvements regarding how you see and use data have been implemented in Office App:

Functionalities’ Adoption & Engagement Overview

A revamped overview offers deep, specific insights into both adoption and engagement rates of Office App features, including Access Control, Parking, and Visitor Registration. These insights allow you to better understand how your building is being used – opening the door for increased efficiency and sustainability.

Spaces Utilization Rate Insights

A new Space Utilization Rate overview provides deeper insight into how often rooms and other areas of your office are being used. This data enables you to better adapt to usage changes, resulting in increased efficiency, and provides critical information regarding building occupancy.

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.
