Major Enhancements and Fixes

Utilization Reports for Locator Elite

Locator Elite is powered by the Utilization Data Sources.

We have added new utilization reports that can be found in the Portfolio Manager > Reports module. For clients that have Locator Elite, the following two new reports can be run:

  • 336 Utilization - Building and Floor Summary Report

This report provides a summary of utilization for a building over a chosen data range. It shows key statistics for the whole data range; a chart of daily utilization over the data range; a Building Stack graph showing the Peak People and Remaining Workpoints; an Average Week graph showing the Peak People and the Total Workpoints.

  • 337 Utilization - Building and Floor Details Report

This report provides details of utilization for the selected locations. The summary tab shows peak utilization details for each building and floor over the whole data range.

Minor Enhancements and Fixes

Space Optimization

Enhancement – The 325 Chargeback Report has been redesigned and now includes the tabs for: Chargeback; Load Factor, Exceptions; Balance Check; Unallocated Spaces.

Enhancement – The Load Factor field was controlled by the Show Chargeback check box in Configuration to determine if the field would show or hide. Now the Load Factor field will always be visible. The Load Factor field is found on the Floor form.

Enhancement – Chargeback - Previously only certain space types would allow the changing of charge rules through the VBS or Space Mapping. For example, any spaces that fell under the 'Core' could not change their individual charge rules, but rather only push default charge rules to all the spaces under 'Core'. Now users have the ability to change the charge rules for individual spaces. 

Enhancement – New Forecasting Demand Import can be used to import forecasting data from external sources.

Fix – The charge rules for Building Common All and Floor Common All will be set as Building Common Internal and Floor Common Internal.

Fix – In Space Mapping the Information icon, now displays the parameter as $floorSelector.

Fix – A Flexi Team is created in the VBS and a workpoint is allocated to the Flexi Team. Then the workpoint is un-allocated from flexi in Workplace and the workpoint appears to be locked as being flexi. This has been corrected and the workpoint now reverts back to be a fixed workpoint.

Fix – In Profile Administration, you can add multiple administrators in the Manage Administrators tab and Manage Teams tab.

Fix – When the Workpoint Import was used to change the space type to a space type that does not allow occupants, the error message "Error saving change request" displayed. Now if a workpoint is allocated with a person and the Workpoint Import is run to change the space type to a space type that does not allow occupants e.g. escalator, the import will change the space type and remove the allocation.


Fix – In BOS the wildcard searching was removed and now the BOS Destination Location search will work with a full stop.
