Slack & Teams Integrations & Notification Editor Revamp

Facility with multiple employees and visitors show that all can receive notifications from LobbyFox


The LobbyFox team is thrilled to announce the release of FoxConnect, our brand new integrations hub in the administrative portal! FoxConnect lays the foundation for us to provide our customers with new and exciting integrations with all of the top tech platforms as rapidly as our development staff can build them. In the works: integrations with ADP Workforce Now, Microsoft ActiveDirectory, Zapier, Okta, OneDrive, Google Drive, and many more.

Slack & Microsoft Teams Integrations

To kick things off, the very first integrations we're rolling out to our customers are integrations with Slack, and Microsoft Teams, both of which are leading communication services used by millions of companies all around the world. If either integration is configured and connected to your workspace, LobbyFox will default to delivering notifications on the chosen platform to hosts that receive a visitor.

What's even cooler: we provide hosts three different "canned responses" right inside of Slack or Teams that they can use to instantly text their visitor's things like "Be right there!" or "Give me 5 minutes." If those don't work, send your visitor a custom text response, right inside Slack or Teams! Further, Slack and Teams are treated just like any other communication delivery method, meaning custom notifications can be set up with any event trigger, just like LobbyFox users can already configure with texts and emails.

Notification Editor Revamp

Because we're adding more communication delivery methods to the platform, our product team felt that it was important to completely rethink how users build notifications inside of LobbyFox. Gone are the days when both email and text content needed to be supplied for any custom notification; Notifications are now structured in a far more generalized manner. Here are the fundamental questions the brand new notification builder interface asks and is streamline to answer: What is the trigger for the notification? Who should be getting the notification? What is the content of the notification? Which delivery methods should the notification use?
