Update Space Types

In SiQ, a Space Type is an attribute assigned to a Space. There are two broad categories of Space Types:

  • Personal
  • Common

Space Type is not the same as Usage Type. Space type is an attribute assigned to a Space, such as Cubicle or Lounge. Usage Type is a description of the way Space is used, such as a Primary Seat or Hoteling Desk.


Assign a Space Type

When in the Floor Map Editor, you'll need to select a Space Type before you can add a space to the map. It is also possible to change the Space Type on a space that has already been created through the Floor Map View page [1].

Simply left click on the space you want to modify [2].

In the data drawer on the right click on the Space Type drop down that appears [3].


It is possible to reassign Space Types on multiple spaces simultaneously by first selecting them with shift and drag, then choosing Update Types from the data drawer.
