  2. Click the Edit button to edit the user’s profile and update the room information.


  1. If you clicked Edit on the floor level to edit a room, or you clicked the Add  icon to add a new room, a new window will open.

  3. Add a category by using the Live Search feature. Start typing the category's name and matching results are displayed. This Category assignment overrides the occupant category on the floor plan.
