Update the shape of existing spaces only for a floor

For an existing floor you can update the space of existing spaces.


Before you proceed to use the Floorplan Importer Tool to update an existing floor, make sure you have the following:

  • Building exists in Serraview.
  • Floor exists in Serraview.
  • Floor has an existing floorplan and mapped spaces.
  • AutoCAD file has changes to space shapes, space names and deleted spaces.


Follow the steps in this section to:

  • update the floorplan image.
  • keep all existing mapped spaces
  • update existing mapped spaces:
    • spaces with polyline changes will be updated.
    • spaces with name changes will be redrawn and team allocation will be removed.
    • spaces that are deleted from the AutoCAD will be removed from the floorplan image only.
  • keep VBS team or occupancy allocations for existing spaces.

If you change the space name in the AutoCAD fie, the existing space will be deleted and remapped. This may affect workpoint wireup data and team allocation.

If a space has been removed from the AutoCAD file, only the floorplan image will be updated. The space and allocation will still exist, refer to the example below.
