Welcome to Atlas, Density’s platform to help you get the most information from your sensors. This video will help you get set up in Atlas, and introduce you to some ideas on how to get value from your platform.
This video assumes that you have already uploaded a floorplan, and worked with Density to add Areas of Interest. If you have not done so already, please reach out to your Implementation Project Manager, or email support at email@example.com.
In the top right corner of Atlas, you will see Space Selection. This box allows you to add metadata to both your floor and your individual spaces. If no space is selected, you will be editing the floor-level data. If a space is selected, the name will show up in the box and will be highlighted on the floor plan.
Floor level options include editing the headcount, or the maximum number of people in the space, and the cost per square foot. Headcount will impact the utilization reporting across the platform, so it is important to include at both floor and space levels. Inputting your cost per square foot on the floor level will calculate the cost of each room in the reporting.
Next, let’s look at the options for a space. Next to the space name, you can edit the type. This is a preset list of space types like cafeterias and open collaboration spaces. Options like meeting rooms and desks unlock additional reporting. Check out the latest additional reporting in our help articles at support.density.io.
You will again want to add the capacity of the space, as this will impact the reporting numbers across the platform. Each space should have a capacity set.
Finally, you’ll see the labels. Unlike types, labels are created by you, and you can add as you need to sort your spaces in a way that makes sense to you. We recommend adding the type of information you’re looking to get ground truth on employee preference. This can be things like the type of furniture you add to a room, technology and equipment provided, and even the temperature of rooms. Types and labels allow you to view the trends that matter most to you.
Now that your platform is set up, it’s time to explore Atlas.
