πŸ’‘ This is part two of setting up your Neighborhoods and Desks. If you haven't yet read part one then please click here for a 'Step-by-Step' guide to setting up your desks.

Four Suggested Ways to Setup Your Neighborhoods and Desks

  1. Hot-desks

Creating a hot-desking area works well if your employees don't need to allocate a desk. They just simply need to book into the office and on arrival choose their desk.

Here is an example attached:

πŸ’‘ If there is just one neighborhood created for the entire office then the employee's will automatically be booked into hot-desks when clicking on Office Location without having to specify what area of the office they are booking into

2. Neighborhoods

The neighborhood concept works well if your teams sit together in a specific area of the office and at a specific bank of desks.
This could be categorized as a Sales (neighborhood) or a Product (Neighborhood) Collaboration space etc. Designing the neighborhoods/bank of desks ensures that the teams are seated together.

Here is an example attached:

3. Individual Desks

You can also create assigned desks. This works well if your employees need to be able to book into a specific desk in the office. Or if you need to assign specific desks to specific people.
Here is an example attached:

4. Combination of the above

Creating neighborhoods, specific desks, and hot desks. This ensures you get the best of all options.
Here is an example attached:

Note: If it works for your organization, we really encourage you to use Neighborhoods (option 2). It makes it much easier for your team to book into the office (rather than having to select from many desk options) and as result, means that more employees will use Officely.
