Create a lobby for use with LobbyConnect, our visitor management platform.
Creating a Lobby
Creating a lobby is very similar to creating a room or a desk. To start, navigate to teem.com, then click Manage in the left menu, followed by Locations (nested under Manage). You will now see the locations page for your Organization.
From the page tabs at the top of the screen you will see a Spaces tab, click on this. A yellow plus button will appear next to Spaces. This is the button you will want to click to add a new Lobby Space.
Once you have clicked to add a space, a pop out will open to the right of the screen.
The first thing you will want to do, is choose the Space Type. In this case we are creating a Lobby Space. Click on Please select a Type and choose the second option of Lobby.
You will then need to name your room. This name will appear in your Teem dashboard.
Next is an option for a Short Description. This could be a description of the location of the Lobby for reference.
Lastly, you will need to select the location in which the Space will be living in your Organization.
Once you have chosen the location, you have the option of saving this room and adding another, or saving this room without creating more rooms. Choose the option that best fits your scenario.
Quickly add new deployments with Quick Add
Teem users with Admin privileges will see a small (+) symbol as they hover over each section of the Location Directory, which we call the Quick Add button. Clicking the Quick Add button will add a new space (room, lobby, or desk space).With this feature users can build out an entirely new location in minutes. Locations created using Quick Add inherit settings from their parent location.
You can also drag and drop a room onto a different floor, or a floor onto a different building. It's handy to clean up one-off mistakes or move an entire deployment into a new building. One thing to keep in mind if you use Maps: this won't update and redraw a map for you, so please let your Customer Success Manager know about any changes and we'll update the map accordingly.
Now that you have successfully created your Lobby, head over to our article on adding devices or get your device set up.
Do I need to license a lobby? LobbyConnect licensing is applied at the device level.
