Officely isn't just a desk booking tool. You can set up bookable Office Extras to give everyone an overview of what's happening in the office each day.

If you need to book a car parking space, bring your dog into the office, or you just want to organize after work drinks, your team can register their interest by adding a +1 to the Extra of their choice.

For Office Managers, you can also add capacity to Extras and use it to order food or book a table for the correct amount of people.

Your team want to see each other, and it's the social aspect that drives office attendance.

However, if you go into the office twice per week, and you know the team lunch is happening on a Wednesday... chances are you'll choose that day to go into the office.

Take inspiration from the examples below for your Office Extras.

Office Extras Inspiration for Your Industry

Office Extras depend heavily on the workspace you're in, the budgets available, and your industry.

We've pulled together some of the most popular Office Extras that you may not have thought of.

Tech Startup

Lucy thought Jake watered the plants, and Jake thought Dan watered the plans, but Dan thought Lucy watered the plants... and now, well, the plants aren't looking so good.

Let everyone know that today is your plant watering day by setting it as an Office Extra. If you book it, you're responsible!

Other popular Extras for tech startups include bike spaces, dogs, and even a baby or two.

Professional Services

Larger corporations tend to have more budget and different needs for Office Extras. Set up networking events, business breakfasts and again, allocate parking spaces.

Creative Agency

Take your team bonding to a new level with office zumba, and let everyone know if a client breakfast is booked in.

Extras aren't just about what's happening in the office, they can be used to show people what's happening each day, especially if you run a client-based business.
