Manual:

The list of people must be manually maintained through the People menu option.

 

Active Directory:

If a site is hosted on premise and this option is selected, people are automatically added from the list of users in the nominated Active Directory groups. If a user is removed from the nominated Active Directory group, the user is not deleted nor disabled.

 

Azure Active Directory:

If this option is selected, people are automatically added from Azure Active Directory. This also requires an Azure AD or Office 365 Integration Provider to be configured before use. If a user is removed from the nominated Azure Active Directory group, the user is not deleted nor disabled.


Desk Allocation
if you are using Azure AD or Active Directory to add people to OfficeMaps it is possible to also assign them to an asset as part of this operation. The section 'Does AD contain a field for desk allocation' allows administrators to specify the field in AD which contains the name of the asset which a user will be assigned to. In the field Desk allocation method enter the value M unless specified otherwise by the OfficeMaps support team. If you have assets with the same name but in different map locations then you can also specify the AD field which contains the name of the location so OfficeMaps can differentiate between the assets.
