Personalizing Your Conference Room Tablets

Conference rooms, while great for having all those meetings, can be customized with a little bit of personality. Each one has a unique character with its name, location and the things it has inside: paintings, amenities, etc. Room displays themselves can be personalized, complimenting the character you’ve given each of your rooms. 

This quick blog post focuses on how you can add a custom theme and logo to your room displays with Robin.

Add a custom theme

Administrators can upload a custom background image for the room display so office walls can reflect company branding.

This features requires the Rooms app version 2.1.0+ for iOS, and 2.1.1+ for Android tablets.

  1. From the web dashboard, navigate to a space. Select “Manage” from the space details page.
  2. Under Details > “Theme Background Image”, upload a PNG or JPG file 3MB or less.
  3. The room display will update with the new background within 10 minutes on its own. To refresh and see the update more quickly, open the schedule drawer and tap the “refresh” icon on the bottom right.

Here’s what that looks like:

Adding a custom logo to the room display

Accounts with an active paid subscriptions can add a custom logo to the room display. It replaces the Robin logo by default.

Since the logo sits on top of your background theme image, we recommend using a monotone version here. We think white looks great, but you do you.

Upload a new logo

Administrators can upload a custom logo from Settings > Details in the web dashboard. The logo should be under 5MB and have a transparent background. PNG file types work best. You’ll find an image template here.

Your logo should automatically update within the next few minutes on room displays running Rooms 1.2 or higher.
