SiQ admins can add departments to neighborhoods from the Floor Map and Manage Neighborhoods. In SiQ, the process of assigning a department to spaces is called an allocation.
Seat usage and department allocation are two separate functions. Any seat (i.e., hot desk, hotel desk, work space) can be allocated for a department. If you want a department allocated to a neighborhood, the seats you select should be of a neighborhood usage type. If the seats are not neighborhood seats, update their usage type to neighborhood before assigning the department.
This article will teach you how to assign departments to neighborhoods from both locations.
