This article explains how to manage capacity enforcement settings to help maintain a safe maximum capacity of your facilities.
YAROOMS supports 3 types of capacity enforcement: area, floor, and location (building) capacities. Jump to:
1. Defining the maximum capacity of areas
In YAROOMS, any room or other office zone (for example, Sales & Marketing corner) can be defined as an area. Different areas on the same floor can have different capacity settings.
If you are an Administrator looking for information how to create new areas using floor plan editor (map view), read this article.
To set up the maximum capacity in different office areas, go to the map view, enter the floor plan editor mode and select “Areas” on the top of the page:
Press on any existing area to modify its capacity and save your selection:
2. Defining the maximum capacity of floors
To set up floor capacity limits, go to Settings → Workplace → click on a floor name → Edit → Capacity. Enter the number and save your selection.
3. Defining the maximum capacity of locations (buildings)
The maximum capacity of a location defines the maximum number of people allowed in the location at any given moment.
The maximum capacity of a location IS NOT related to the total number of bookings allowed.
To set up location (building) capacity limits, go to Settings → Workplace → click on a location name → Edit → Capacity. Enter the number and save your selection.
The location (building) capacity overrides the floor or individual area capacities when reached. For example:
Your office building has 2 floors, each with the capacity of 10 people. The normal (unlimited) location capacity is 20.
You set up a capacity limit of maximum 16 people in the building (both floors).
After booking 8 seats on each floor, all the other available seats (4, in this case) in the building are disabled.
