Eden product update, room scheduling, desk booking, performance management, visitor management, mailroom management

Every month, we'll be sharing an overview of Eden's latest product and feature updates from the previous month, plus sneak peeks into what's to come.

Product Updates: QR Codes • MS Teams App • Room Scheduling on Mobile

QR codes for visitor and employee check in

Products: Visitor Management  • Team Safety

Visitor Management users can now enable QR codes on their iPad kiosk to enable a touchless check in process for visitors and employees. With QR codes, visitors and employees—with or without reservations—can check into the office using their mobile device.

QR codes are available on version 2.13.0 of the Eden Tablet App.

Pro tip: Control if your employees can make a reservation or check-in on the iPad kiosk by configuring visibility in your Team Safety settings.

Room Scheduling on the mobile app

Product: Room Scheduling

Users can reserve a room directly from the mobile app while on the go! Reserving a room allows users to quickly see and book an available room. Simply select a location and floor, filter by capacity or attribute, and secure your favorite room for your next meeting.

Room Scheduling customers can access this feature by updating the mobile app or downloading from the Google Play (v. 1.3.0) or Apple App Store (v. 1.5.0). Both versions should be available this week!
