Space Console improvements - Archibus Web Central V26.1


In this Blog we give a brief overview of some of the improvements to the Space Console in the new version of Web Central 26.1.

 

This includes an Improved Search feature and user experience improvements.

 


1.     Improved Search


The Space Console's Search Box now offers three modes of search: Quick, Employee, and Query. Choose the search mode, and the Search Box (located to the left) activates the appropriate behaviour for the selected mode. When you set the fields on which to search using the new Select Search Fields form, the selection applies to all modes.

 

                                                                   

 

2.     Query mode search


 

Query mode allows the following fields to be searched:

 

 

 

 

 

The following searches are supported:

 

Type

Description

Syntax

Example

Exact

An exact search for a specific field by typing a field, “=” and its value in order to find the floors that match the exact value for the specified field.

Matching is case-insensitive and searches both Code and Name/Description fields (unless this is unchecked in “Select Search Field” form). The available fields are Site, Building, Floor, Division, Department, Category unless unchecked in Select Search Field form.

Field = ”Value“

Department = ”SALES“ will return all floors with Department Code or Department Name of “SALES”

Wildcard

Search for a specific field by typing a field, “like” and its value in order to find the floors contains the value for the specified field.

Field like ”%Value%”

Field like ”%Value“

Field like ”Value%

Department LIKE ”%ADMIN%” will return all floors with department “Administration Services” and “IT Administration”

Department LIKE “ADMINISTARTION%" will return all floors with department “Administration Services” only.

Department LIKE “%ADMININSTARTION"I d will return all floors with department “IT Administration” only.

Includes

Search for a specific field by typing a field, “includes” and a list of values in order to find the floors contains any value for the specified field.

 

Field includes ?”value1”, ”value2”, “value3”,…?

Floor includes ?”01”,”02”,”03””? will return the floors 01, 02, 03

Excludes

Search for a specific field by typing a field, “excludes” and a list of values in order to find the floors do not contains any value for the specified field.

Field excludes ?”value1”, ”value2”, “value3”,…?

Floor excludes ?”01”,”02”,”03”? will return all floors except the floor 01, 02, 03

Mixed

 

Search using a combination of all above query searches using ANDOR().

 

Building=”AB” OR Department like ”%Admin%”

Building=”AB” OR Department like ”%Admin%”

Building=”AB” AND (Department like ”%Admin%” OR Department like ”%Sales%”)


3. Employee mode search


 

Searching for an employee -- whether it be by their permanent seat or a temporary "hot desk" seat for today. The Space Console now supports employee search right from the search box. Set the search mode to Employee, enter a few characters of the name of the desired employee in the Search box, and the results box will update with the employees it finds. To support current trends of hoteled seats in an agile workplace, the results include both permanent seats and hoteled locations for today.

 


4.     Print Floor Plans without Highlights


The ability to print from the Space Console floor plans without any highlights has been added. A printed floor plan that is highlighted in various colours is not necessary, and in fact, the highlights might detract from notations that users make.

To support this use case, you can now print a floor plan from the Space Console without the Space Console first prompting you to set a highlight if one is not already set.


5.     Zoom when Searching Employees and Rooms


When you search for a room or employee, the Search Console will now zoom into the room or the room housing the employee (both hoteled or permanent seat). This is especially convenient when you have a large floor plan or small rooms, as the automatic zoom saves your from having to scan the floor plan for the employee or room.

 

The Space Console now zooms the floor plan under these conditions:

 

  • When you use Advanced Search to search for a room or employee, and the search results find a single room or single employee.
  • If you use Employee Search and pick a location (either a permanently assigned or a hoteled seat) from the search results.
 
 
 
6.     Drag and Drop Employee Names

To support sites that use the Employee Code field to store an identifying employee number and the Employee Name field to store the employee's name, the Space Console offers labels for both Employee Name and Employee Code. This enables users to list a descriptive employee name on the floor plan rather than the employee's identifying code. You can now move employees to new locations on the floor plan by dragging and dropping either the Employee Name label or the Employee Code label.
