What's new in RICOH Spaces this Month?

🔎 Allow users any option when zone booking (Invite Only) 

🧪 New navigation panel (Invite Only)

🔗Linked Rooms

For complex spaces, there may be a dividing wall that can be removed or an adjustment to seating that can be made to increase capacity. Currently, this can be managed in RICOH Spaces with subspaces & service requests however this can be improved.

Linked Space bookings will allow the user to see possible capacity configurations and required configuration time when booking a space that has the ability to transform.

This will also mean during space searching, configurations will be possible to choose to make the process much easier.

🔖 Outlook Add-in

When booking resources in an office, one of the most used tools in Outlook. It's important that we're where our users are.

We have introduced the ability to find a Space using an Outlook Add-In. This would be the same functionality offered in Space Search directly within Outlook.

🪲 Continuing with improving the app.
