Step 3: Adding People to OfficeMaps

Staff who will use the system will then need to be added to OfficeMaps. The list of people in the system can be seen through the menu option Preferences -> People.




People can be added manually on this screen or imported from Azure, Active Directory (on premise sites only) or via Excel. More information about this is available in the article Importing, Updating and Exporting People. Ensure that all users with responsibility for the maintenance of OfficeMaps are given the role Administrator. These users can create locations, departments, assets and pins and assign users to them. The Instance Administrator role is for users who are additionally responsible for subscription, account and payment information.

To import people from Azure Active Directory you will need to configure an Integration. This will require involvement from your organisation’s IT staff or provider. This is explained in the article Adding a new Azure AD/Office 365 Integration Provider.
