Whats new in Optix: November 2017

During the month of November, the Optix Team rolled out a few big new features for managers, along with a handful of small but mighty updates for your members, too! Without further ado, learn more about what we’ve added to Optix over the past few weeks.

For managers: Introducing multi-venue management

Whats new in Optix: November 2017

It’s finally here—multi-venue management! Now, you can manage multiple venues from within one Optix account. We built Optix in order to allow you to provide more flexibility and value for your members. With multi-venue management, we take that idea one step further. Now, you can power your multi-venue network with a powerful mobile-first solution, one designed to grow with you as the needs of your business evolve over time. Keep your entire community connected across multiple locations, while streamlining operations for your venue admins.

For managers: Introducing a fresh new look for the Optix dashboard

We’ve updated the look and feel of the Optix dashboard to make the process of managing the day-to-day operations at your organization more delightful and intuitive than ever. Along with the physical changes, we’ve added a few key features such as: additional filtering options, side panels, and new invoice sorting.

For your members: Ability to extend active room bookings

When a member realizes mid-meeting that they didn’t book quite enough time, they can now enjoy the option to extend their meeting with a few quick taps on their phone. This update will keep your members from interrupting their meeting to ensure no one else will take over the room before they’re ready. If extending the meeting will result in an additional charge (i.e. their plan allowance runs out or they made the booking without a plan), they’ll be able to review the charge before they accept the booking extension. That way, there are no surprises at the end of the month!

Note: This feature is currently available on Android, and will be live on iOS in early December.

For your members: Team profiles

We’ve expanded upon the public user profile feature viewable in the ‘Connect’ section of your mobile app! This month, we launched team profiles. This means that now teams that work out of your space (i.e. startups, nonprofits, business partners, etc) can create a short public profile to share a bit more about their company with other members.

Note: This feature is currently available on Android, and will be live on iOS in early December.

Coming soon: Additional check-in functionality

Keep your eyes peeled for a few new improvements to daily check-ins, elevating the check-in experience for members and managers alike! We’ll be sharing a more in-depth blog post when these improvements officially launch in early December, so ensure you’re signed up for the Optix newsletter below to be the first to hear about it.
