We have created this post as a guide to help you better customize the OfficeRnD Member Portal. You will find some helpful tips to get you started and take member experience to a whole new level. We’ve included detailed instructions and added a video tutorial to make this even easier for you.
The OfficeRnD Member Portal was built to help you convey your brand image and show off the unique characteristics and amenities of your coworking space. And we want you to make the most out of it!
We have just released a new version of the OfficeRnD Member Portal. Make sure to enable this for your members by navigating to Settings / Apps / General in the Admin portal and you will see a button to Activate for all members.
Remember – you can always access your member portal by clicking on the app boxes in the top right corner of the Admin Portal and selecting Member Portal.
Now that we have activated the new Members Portal the next step is matching the portal colors to your brand!
First, make sure you have uploaded an appropriate logo into Settings / My Account. Logos with a 4:1 ratio work the best and will scale correctly in the members portal. We recommend using a .png image with a transparent background here.
To adjust the portal colors go to Settings / Apps / Theme and you will get a preview of your selected colors.
Your Primary Color is the most important color and will be used for buttons, titles, and other member functions within the app. Most spaces use their official brand color here. This color is what will be used in the mobile app as well.
Your Navigation Color will be used as the background color to house the icons within the member portal app. Darker colors work better here as the white icons are more legible.
Your Background Color is the coloring that goes behind all of your content. Most spaces opt for a grey or lighter background here to make the text stand out more.
Play around with the colors until you get some that matches your brand image!
The Favicon is the small icon that appears next to website headers in tabs to easily identify your member portal. Most clients use a .png transparent square version of their logo for this asset.
The background image will be displayed to your members before they first login as well as the hero image that is displayed up top of your members portal. Most spaces include a picture of their building or interior of the space.
Your Welcome Widget Combines your background and some custom text to welcome your members into the portal! You can adjust this text by navigating to going to Settings / Apps / Member Pages and scrolling down to the button that says Welcome Widget. Click Configure and you will be able to write a Title and Subtitle that all your members can see when they login.
OfficeRnD gives you full control over the Main Menu of your member portal and the links that you members will see. You can easily disable certain features and sections by unchecking the associated checkbox.
To customize the sidebar navigate to Settings / Apps / Member Pages and scroll down to review the features available to activate or deactivate in the members portal.
You can also see the order of the main menu if you scroll further down. You can rename and renumber the items here to rearrange them on the Main Menu in the portal.
Just as you would greet someone walking into your physical workspace – it’s best practice to introduce your members to your digital space! We recommend writing a post with a special message for a guest and including another photo of your space or team. You can write a post from the Admin Portal. Go to Collaboration / Posts and click on Add Post.
Make sure to select the checkbox to Pin to top so that it’s the first thing members see when they log in. You can also upload an image in this section. Once you are happy with your message click “Add”. This can be adjusted at any time if you need to change it later.
You can attach your company’s twitter feed to be displayed inside the member portal for all your members to easily view. To do this navigate to the admin portal and go to Settings / Apps / Member Pages and scroll down to the section that says Twitter Feed. Click on Configure and you will be able to add your Twitter Handle and how many posts you want displayed on the portal at one time.
Once you have added your meeting rooms into the system and set up their hourly rates, make sure that you upload pictures for the rooms. In the Admin Portal navigate to Space / Meeting Rooms and click on the cog wheel next to your room. Click on the tab that says Calendar and you will be able to upload images for your meeting room. This helps your members more easily identify the room they are booking!
It also is useful to add the amenities of each conference room into the system. These can be added when creating the meeting room rates and will show up on the calendar when booking.
Help guides allow your space to easily convey important information to your members that is easily accessible for review. Navigate to Collaboration / How to Guides and click Add Article to add a new guide. You can put Emoji’s next to the title of the Article to better visualize the guides.
Feel free to add pictures, videos, or link to an external website or document and your members will be able to view these guides on their member portal and mobile app.
Feel free to add in unique benefits offered at your space. These special deals or partnerships can be viewed by your members and interacted with through the portal.
To add or edit benefits go to Collaboration / Benefits and click on Add Benefit. You can add photos and information here for your members to view.
OfficeRnD allows you to display plans and products in your member portal for members to purchase.
Navigate to Billing / Plans to view all of the available plans. You can create a new plan or product. Once you have selected the plan you are interested in offering at your store – move to the Portal tab and select Available for Members. This will allow your plans to be available in the store.
You can create custom pages for your Members Portal that can give your community more tools and information. A custom page could be a list of mentors that are part of your community, a catering menu, or an external website that is embedded in your portal.
Navigate to Settings/Apps/Member Pages and at the bottom in the Custom Pages section, click Add Page.
Select the Type to be an External Page and link your URL in the space below.
Using the Settings/Apps -> Custom Code section you can change completely the styling of your member portal. For example, you can change:
