Social Distancing Features are Here

See the latest updates to Social Distancing Measures and Hoteling in SpaceIQ:

SpaceIQ now offers social distancing indicators, along with improved hotel desk options:

Social Distancing on Maps

As you return to work, it is important to keep safe distance rules in place to support the health and well being of your staff. We created flexible, intuitive distancing features to keep your teams operating at peak efficiency:

  • Distancing Rules Map View Filters
  • Distancing Visible on Map Edit Page
  • Per Floor Distancing Rules


Hotel Check-In Reminders

Just when you thought hoteling couldn’t get any easier! We’ve eliminated the need to hunt for appointment details and check-in buttons. Employees can now check-in on the web app. We’ve also added various reminders, including new in-app reminders:

  • Web App Check-In: My Bookings
  • In-App Reminders of Appointments
  • Email Reminders with Check-In Button


Hoteling Restrictions & Reporting

Don’t waste valuable space with duplicate hotel bookings. With this new feature, restrict users from accidentally booking two or more desks for the same time slot.

We also added historic hotel usage on a per-employee basis to our already powerful hotel reporting features so you can see who sat where and when. Measure and encourage hoteling adoption on a per-person basis for even greater space utilization.
