The Neighborhood and Desk feature is designed to help you and your team choose where you want to sit and to have easy visibility over who sits where.

Our step-by-step guide to setup your Neighborhoods and Desks

Step one:

Click on the Officely app (it's on the left-hand side of the taskbar)

Step two:

Click on Quick Actions > Manage neighborhoods

Step three:

Scroll down and click on 'Create'

What are Neighborhoods?

Neighborhoods represent the banks of desks in your office.

How to set up the Neighborhoods?

1. Name

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.

3. Category

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.
