What are Neighborhoods?
Neighborhoods represent the banks of desks in your office.
How to set up the Neighborhoods?
First step is to give the Neighborhood a name.
This will ensure the employees know what area of the office they are booking into. For example you could call a Neighborhood as Sales, Product, Operations Neighborhood etc.
2. Desk count
Second of all it's important to add the desk count of each Neighborhood/bank of desks.
Once you know the desk count of each Neighborhood you can proceed by adding it to the Neighborhood that represents the specific area of your office. Leaving the desk count as blank will automatically assign an infinite amount of desks available.
This will allow you to manage the office capacity efficiently.
💡 How to adjust your desk count
If your desk count has grown or if you'd like to decrease the number of desks available you can do this by heading to:
Officely Home > Settings > Offices > Three Dots on the right-hand side > Neighborhoods and desks > Scroll down and click on the three dots next to the given Neighborhood.
Third step is optional but useful if you want to group Neighborhoods together. For example you could add a category of Ground Floor, 1st Floor, etc.
