Change Seat to Secondary Seat

When a seat is a secondary desk, it will act as a secondary location for the assigned employee, a backup to their primary seat. We see this most often with traveling employees or employees who have very specialized workspaces, like an audio technician with both a desk and a recording space.

Remember that you can change a single desk or multiple desks to a new usage type.
