Space Icons Overview
Space icons are the dots on individual workstations and meeting rooms.
These spaces are searchable, which allows users to find important rooms in the office, and they also contribute to SiQ’s insight into the usable square footage. There are two types of Spaces that you’ll see in the Add Space menu:
- Personal Spaces
- Common Spaces
Remember when you add a personal, common, or custom space to a floor map, a space type is automatically assigned to each space. As your space requirements change, you can update space types on the floor map. Space types can be updated from the floor map or the floor map editor. See Understanding Space Types and Update Space Type.
This article will teach you about both types of spaces, their attributes, and what they look like on the floor map.

These are Space icons that represent individual seats at work space, reception, bench desk, cubicle, and offices where individual employees can be assigned for temporary or long-term seating OR a department or workplace group can be allocated to. They all have the same set of attributes, those being coordinates, Size, Density, and Code. When first placed on the map, they look like dark grey doughnuts.

These are Space icons for larger areas such as conference rooms, meeting rooms, breakout rooms, coworking spaces, kitchens etc. When you assign Space icons from the Common list (and enter a Space Label) this makes it easier for your employees to search and find common space on the map.
They have the same attributes as personal spaces (coordinates, Size, Density, Code) and an additional label field that lets you change the associated text label of the space on the map. Common spaces all have the same green diamond icon appearance and the same attributes, except for meeting rooms.
