Editing the Seating Chart
This is a continuation of the Setup page.
This page contains instructions on how to edit the Seating Chart itself. The Chart Editor is only visible to groups and users marked as Global Editors in the Confluence Administration. See this page for more details.
To access the editor, click the Edit button. You page should now look something like this:
Managing Floors and Buildings
Using the Building Configuration Menu you can add, delete, reorder, and rename floors and buildings. You can create as many floors and buildings as you like, which you will be able to drag users onto via the sidebar.
Click the Configure Buildings button to open the menu. You should see a menu like the one below:
Rename, Delete, and Change Background
To expand the building to show floors, click the to the left of the building name. You should now see the full contents of the building. Hovering over floors and buildings will reveal more buttons that will let you configure aspects of the floor/building.
- - Lets you rename the floor or building you are hovering over.
- - Lets you delete the floor or building you are hovering over.
- - Lets you change the background image of the floor you are hovering over (buildings don't have a background to change).
Reordering Buildings and Floors
You can also reorder the buildings and floors using the grabber on the right of each floor and building entry. Just click and drag the grabber, and you'll see a red line indicating where the floor or building will be placed.
You can move floors between two buildings if you have both expanded!
Reordering affects the order of buildings and floors in the dropdown menu. For example, dragging Floor 3 above Floor 1 will cause the Floor dropdown menu to look like this:
Changing Floor Backgrounds
The floor background can be changed in two ways. Either via the Change Image button (mentioned previously) or by clicking the Change Floor Image button on the bottom bar (changes the background of the current floor).
This will open the Change Floor Image Menu. From here, you will be able to upload a new image to used as the background for the floor you selected.
Using background images smaller than 1000x1000 pixels are not recommended. Smaller images give you less space to place users.
The background you upload should have enough space between desks so users can be placed without overlapping. Ideally, there should at least 100x100px of space between desks.
To place a user from the sidebar, simply click and drag them onto the chart.
Moving and Deleting Users
Moving a user is also easy. Clicking and dragging the users on the chart will let you move them wherever you please.
