Associate Employees or Spaces to Assets

Assets can be associated with employees and spaces.

  • Employees may need to have particular assets, for example, multiple employees may need Ergo Chairs in their workspaces.
  • Spaces can have particular assets associated with them. For example, some of your hoteling desks will be a sit-stand desk and when this asset is associated with the space then your employees to be able to quickly find these when making a booking.

You can complete this association via:

Note: Watch SiQ in action see Book a Desk with Assets (Web) or Book a Desk with Assets (Mobile).
