The Roompact Recap for Spring 2020

Take Care of Yourself

We appreciate you!

As your campuses have been thrown into chaos responding to COVID-19, we know that your lives have also been thrown into chaos. The work you do is important, but YOU are also important. Your Roompact Advisory team and all of us at Roompact want to let you know we are here for you. In many ways, we see you as “our residents” and we’re here to support you.

COVID-19 + Roompact Resources

As many campuses made the transition to online classes, at Roompact, we are witnessing first-hand how our software has become more critical than ever. Additionally, many of our clients are using Roompact’s features and solutions in new and novel ways. Curious about how Roompact can support your work? Learn more from this blog post.

Software Update: Term Rollovers

Roompact will be releasing a software update in May that will change the way our software handles data when there is a change in academic term.

Rather than archiving each term and creating a new term, the data in Roompact will now be treated as one continuous timeline. As a user, many of these changes will be invisible to you, but you will soon notice a new feature that allows you to “jump back in time” to see your campus data as it was on a specific date.

To find out more about these changes, check out our FAQ.
