Update Settings Manually

From the Spaces module complete the following:

  1. Click the Edit Floor icon.
  2. From the floorplan double-click the space. The Update Space form displays.

The Update Space form consists of the following tabs:

  • Overview tab
  • Space Data tab - Note the VBS will only display spaces on the floorplan where the space has the Charge Rule set and the Allow Org Unit Allocations check box is checked. Therefore, we recommend you update the space type in the Spaces Module. Refer to the Important Notes about Points and Polygons below. 
  • Attributes tab
  • Custom Fields tab

This form is the same form found in the Block and Stack (VBS), see the Space Details Form for details on how to update the space.


Important Notes about Points and Polygons

Space Module's floorplan displays points and polygons.


If you double-click a point then the space such as Desk Standard, the Space Type drop-down will let you change the space type.



  • If you double-click a polygon space such as Workspace, then the Space Type drop-down will be grayed-out as you cannot change this space type.


  • You change the Workspace's children into other space types in the Space Hierarchy. For example, you cannot change an Office space type to be a Meeting Room space type.
