Manage Villages


Teams of people can be assigned to use any space within a village, providing next-generation flexibility for the hybrid workforce. Also, the support for villages will include a booking rule for Engage Reservations, allowing residents of a village to book any desk within their assigned village. See Allow Employees in a Village to Reserve Desks.

In the Configuration module, you can set up the villages, see Configure Villages. From this area you will be able to:

  • Add or edit a village name, color, and target ratio.
  • Unlink a village from all the neighborhoods and then delete a village.
