Locations, Departments and Maps

Locations, Departments and Maps

OfficeMaps provides a convenient way track assets (like desks and meetings rooms) and people across your organisation.  You can navigate your organisation by locations or departments.

Locations are the physical places where your organisation operates. This can include sites, buildings and levels within a building, known as site levels. To learn more about the Location Tree see the Section Locations.

Departments are the teams or groups within your organisation, people are assigned to one or more departments. The people assigned to a department can be spread across different locations. To learn more about the Department Tree see the Section Departments.

Maps are the floor plans of your office space and work areas. People, assets and pins are shown on maps. A map can be uploaded to each Site Level in the Location Tree.  To learn more about this, see the Section Managing Level Maps
