I started at Envoy three years ago with one purpose—to create content that makes users more successful. While there are many aspects to this endeavor, I’ve come to truly love what’s maybe the least sexy part of any product.

The help center.

Why? Because it can make or break an experience. I’m sure there’s been a time where you had to do something at work that was intimidating. At startups, this is part of everyday life. We so often teach ourselves how to use new tools and create new processes. …

Features

View all invites you create

We’ve made it easier than ever to manage invites for other employees. When you create an invite on behalf of someone else, it now appears in your invites list — meaning all the invites you manage are only a click away.

Plus, it’s simple to see who’s inviting visitors on your behalf. Just open the invite, and at the bottom you’ll see a new “invited by” area. This area displays the name of the team member who created the invite on your behalf. Learn more about managing invites.

Features

Invite visitors directly from your calendar

Available on Premium and Enterprise Plans

Our pre-registration feature brings you a lot of benefits: You can send visitors an invite email, they can sign your NDA in advance, it helps you know who to expect and it speeds up sign in. Since there’s so much to gain by using pre-registration, we want it to be as easy as possible to create Envoy invites.

When you’re planning a meeting or interview, we know you’re often creating a calendar event with Google Calendar, Outlook, or another calendar app. And now, you…

Features

Sign in visitors from the dashboard

Available on Premium and Enterprise Plans

If you’ve ever had a situation where it’s more convenient for guests to skip the iPad sign-in (if you have VIPs, for example), this new feature lets you manually create new visitor entries right from our online dashboard. And don’t worry, you’ll still have the option to print badges and send host notifications. Learn more about signing in visitors from the dashboard.

Note: Visitors signed in from the dashboard will not be prompted to sign your NDA. …

Features

Employee directory export

Easily export a CSV of employee records from your directory at any time. Why might you want to export employees? Here are a few examples:

  • Audit logs: Employee exports show all visitors that have ever been in the directory. If the employee has been removed, it shows the date and time of deletion.
  • Updated records: If you’ve ever edited employees manually, an employee export would provide you with an updated record of all employees.
  • CSV of synced employees: If you use Google Apps, Okta, or OneLogin, exporting employees from Envoy…


You asked. We listened!

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Admin Roles, a new feature for multiple admin accounts, which will give you greater flexibility, freedom, control, and security.

Sharing is an admirable quality among friends and coworkers, but we understand that doesn’t necessarily extend to login credentials and passwords. With Admin Roles, you’ll no longer have to share a single admin login across your company. Now you can create as many admin accounts as you need, with individual roles and specific permissions!

Excited? You can access this new functionality on your dashboard right now. …

Device management

Envoy device management now allows you to manage your iPads from the web dashboard. Simply type in the device code when prompted, you’ll see at-a-glance which iPads are connected to each location. Plus, you can even check to see if any iPads are offline or if they require iOS or Envoy app updates. Learn more.


If your company has custom fields to collect information from your visitors, you can now answer these sign-in questions on their behalf when you complete the pre-registration form.

Let’s dive deeper: To create a pre-registration, Envoy must “know” a few things:

  • Visitor’s name
  • Visitor’s email address
  • Expected arrival time
  • Visitor’s purpose of visit
  • Host’s name
Required fields for pre-registration

Your company might also ask visitors for their company name, address, phone number, or any other question at all. Now, you can pre-fill the answers to those custom questions right in the pre-registration form.
