Book a Desk from the Floor Map

Hotel desks can also be booked from the floor map. This section will show you how to identify hotel desks on the floor map, and then walk you through booking a desk.


Identify Hoteling Desks on the Floor Map

Spaces with aqua centers represent hotel desks on the floor map.


Hotel desks can be allocated for a department or workplace group, or they can be unaffiliated and available for anyone to book. A hotel desk with an aqua center and a black outer ring indicate that the desk is free of departmental association; anyone can book these desks, regardless of department membership. For example, anyone can book this desk:


Hotel desks allocated for a department have aqua centers and a colored outer ring corresponding to departmental and team colors. Department and team colors will vary by organization. 

We'll look at an example from a SiQ account where the Operations department is orange, and the Claims team is purple. This hotel desk is allocated to the Operations department.


When you zoom into the floor map, colors become more defined; this desk is for the Operations department, Claims team: 


An Operations department employee from the Claims team can book this desk.
