Associate Employees or Spaces to Assets

Assets can be associated with employees and spaces.

  • Employees may need to have particular assets; for example, multiple employees may need Ergo Chairs in their workspaces.
  • Spaces can have particular assets associated with them. For example, some of your hoteling desks will be a sit-stand desk, and when this asset is associated with the space, your employees can find these when booking quickly.

You can complete this association via:

Associate Employees or Spaces to Asset Manually

  1. To add an employee, click the + Employee button, or to add a space, click the + Space button.
