Manage Allocation and Seats Overview

The Floor Map is where you manage the allocation of Departments, Workgroups, Neighborhoods, and the employee seating assignment. 

Seating Charts for Fixed Desks

When your Seating Chart has fixed desks, you can assign your unseated employees to their seats. 

Note: This can be done manually or via an import.

  • Bulk Import Employees to their Desks - We recommend that when you have > 200 employees to seat that you use the Employee Import to seat the employees in bulk. See Add Employees to Seats via the Move Import.
  • Manually Seat Employees to their Desks - If you have < 200 employees you can manually seat the employees. Note, if you want to you can still use the Move Import to seat the employee.

Allocate seats to a department and assign employees seats

When you want a Department (or Team) to have allocated seats on the floor map and the employees have assigned seats.

This can be used when you want to set up a Team from the same Department. 

See Assign Employees to Seats and allocate a Team

 

Allocate seats to a project team (workplace group)

When you want a Workplace Group to have allocated seats on the floor map and the employees have assigned seats.

This can be used when you want to set up a Project Team with employees who need to be assigned seats.

See Assign Employees to Seats and allocate a Project Team

 

Seating Charts for Flexible Desks

When your Seating Chart has flexible desks, you can allocate departments (teams), workplace groups, or neighborhoods to the seats.

Notes:

  • A flexible team is a team that uses Activity Based Working (ABW) or flexible working style. This means all allocated desks are shared by the employees, with no desks assigned to individuals.
  • Neighborhoods are a way of taking the flexible working concept one step further, by letting multiple teams share the space. You will be able to set the employee-to-seat ratio.
  • Neighborhoods can have either employees or departments associated with them.

Allocate seats to a neighborhood for a project team (employees)

This is where you want Workplace Group to be allocated to seats but the employees have no assigned seats. With a neighborhood, you can set up an employee-to-seat ratio.

This can be used when you have a project team that consists of multiple employees from different teams and they require employee-to-seat ratio set. 

See Allocate Seats to a Neighborhood for a Project Team

Allocate seats to a neighborhood for team(s) (department)

Change Neighborhood to Hoteling Desks

See Change a Neighborhood to Hoteling Desks

 

Additional Seating Types

Remember if you need there are additional seating types that can be set up:

  • Hot Desk - this is used to share work spaces in an unstructured manner with employees. Individual employees cannot be assigned to Hot Desks.
  • Reserved Desk - this is used to let you temporarily prevent the seat from being used. This is useful in certain situations to ensure your summary data is not affected by seats that might otherwise be counted as vacant. 
  • Secondary Desk - this is used for designating another space to an employee, even when the person who is using it is already assigned to another Primary or Shared Seat.
  • Shared Desk - this is used to let you assign multiple employees to a desk.

Remote Employees

If you have employee(s) who work remotely you can mark them as Remote. When employees are marked as remote, they will not be included in the occupancy count in the dashboards and reports. See Update Selected Employees.

Employee Moves

You can create a Move Plan to organize a relocation or employees or teams. Or if you have new employees starting (or employees leaving) on a particular date then you can create a Move Plan and then implement the plan on a date.

See Move Orders or Add Move Plan via the Floor Map.
