Rename Rooms as Spaces

In the iOFFICE application, we use the term "room" to identify occupiable and unoccupiable areas within a building; however, we have determined that "room" is a bit too limited as a descriptor for all the various spaces our customers define within their workspaces. As such, we are renaming the Room identifiers (where appropriate) as "Space" in the application. For example, when selecting the location for a service request, you now select a space rather than a room.

Similarly, you can now view spaces available for reservations on the Space Availability screen rather than the Room Availability screen, providing an expanded definition for reservable spaces that cannot be defined as rooms, such as lounge areas or workstations.

This also applies when assigning users to spaces on the User Profile screen, allowing you to consider additional spaces when configuring your floor plan to accommodate employee growth.

These are just a few examples of how we will be renaming rooms as spaces throughout the application in the coming weeks. We believe this more comprehensive and accurate description provides you with additional flexibility when defining or re-envisioning spaces in your environment.
