Optimizing User Interaction - Room Overview UI Enhancements

Welcome to a new era of seamless device management and monitoring within Lens Rooms, where Poly Devices and Lens are set to redefine your Room management experience. Our latest enhancements bring forth a series of improvements designed to empower you in efficiently navigating and monitoring Rooms. To start, the Side Navigation of your Room Overview will expose your Room detail settings by offering a more user-friendly interface. In addition, we've introduced comprehensive device status enhancements that provide real-time updates on the online, offline status of your devices. Along with getting contextual information if that Room is in a Meeting or Idle. Now, at a glance, you can effortlessly determine the operational state of each device in your Room. Furthermore, our approach extends to the introduction of an updated Device Inventory table, offering a centralized hub to monitor and manage all devices within the Room efficiently. Join us on this journey as we uncover the details of these enhancements, unlocking a new level of control and visibility for your Poly Devices in Lens Rooms.

To get started, go to Manage > Rooms > Add New or Select a Room.
