Locator's Home Page

When you sign into Locator via a Kiosk or on your laptop/desktop computer, the Home page displays, this allows you to choose to find a Space, Person or Desk. After you have selected, you will be provided with further search/filter tools.

The icons can be used to complete a global search for people/meeting spaces. Also, there is an icon to navigate to the Find Work Space and Find Meeting Space tools.


As some clients disable some tools within Locator, the Home page may look different in your business. Also, as space types, space attributes, utilization sources, and other configuration settings for each business is unique and impact the way in which the Serraview Locator behaves, we recommend you contact your System Administrator with any queries in the first instance.
