Delete spaces no longer present in the file for a floor

For an existing floor you can delete spaces no longer present in the file.

Prerequisites


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 name and deleted spaces.

Purpose


Follow the steps in this section to:

  • update the floorplan image.
  • deletes all existing mapping that has not been changed.
  • only maps spaces that are new in the drawing or that have been renamed.
  • remove any team or occupancy allocations to the spaces on this floor as seen in the VBS.

If a space's name has been changed, the existing space will be deleted and re-mapped with the new name. Any spaces that did not have any changes will be deleted.
