Checking into your desk
If your company has Automatic desk free up turned on and set to a specific time, you will have to check into your desk prior to that time or you will have to book a new desk after.
Checking into your desk via Envoy mobile
Open your Envoy app.
First tap Register to complete your health questionnaire or Get started if you’re already scheduled for the day.
Tap Sign in. You’ll automatically be checked into your desk for the day.
Checking into your desk via Slack or Microsoft Teams
One hour before your check-in time Envoy's bot on Slack or Microsoft Teams will message you a reminder to check into your desk if you haven't already.
From that message you can click Check-in.
The Desk Check-in (Space Saver) feature must be enabled by an admin in order for you to receive notifications via Slack or Microsoft about desk check-in. Please reach out to your internal team with questions regarding this.
Sitting near co-workers
Under the Map tab, you can scroll around on the map to see where your coworkers are sitting.
Tap an employee’s name and choose to Sit nearby or tap the Star to favorite that coworker.
Under the Directory tab you can see a list of your coworkers or create workplace groups.
Coordinate your schedule with co-workers
Tap on Schedule then pick a date from the list or calendar to see who else is planning to work on-site that same day.
Invite a teammate to join you on days you plan to work on-site to collaborate.

Enabling automatic sign-ins
You also have the option to sign in automatically when you arrive at work. Using geolocation technology, once you arrive within 100 meters of your workplace location, you will be automatically signed in to the office AND checked in to your desk.
To turn on automatic sign-ins:
This feature will not be available on app versions earlier than 4.25.0
Enable “Sign me in based on my location” within the settings of the Envoy app.
Click on Profile (bottom right) > Click the gear icon (top right) > under Employee Settings you should see the “Sign me in based on my location” option > Toggle this on
If this option is not visible, it is most likely because the app is not updated to the latest version. See step 1.
Set location access to “Always” (on iOS) or “Allow all the time” (on Android).
If your location access was already set like that, automatic sign-ins should be enabled for you already.
Automatic sign-ins will not work if you select “While using the app.”
If your device does not prompt you to enable location, you can manually apply these settings. See this article for more info.
Try it out! The next time you arrive at work, you should be signed in automatically.
If you don’t want to sign in automatically, you can disable this feature and continue to sign in manually.
Automatic sign-ins + Health Checks
If your company requires a health check to go into the workplace, this will still need to be completed prior to registering for the day. If you do not complete (or fail) the health check, you will not be scheduled and will not be able to sign-in (manually or automatic).
