How to view your assigned desk as an employee

  1. Register to go into the office

  2. Sign in

  3. There are two separate ways to view your desk assignment
    • Right after you sign in you'll be viewing your pass. Here it says your desk and shows the floor map.
    ➖ If the image is a high enough resolution you will be able to zoom in and look at closer details.
    • If you close the pass you can always re-open it to view the floor map but you will also see on the registration card itself the desk assignment.

Upon sign in

After closing your pass

  1. Once signed in you can click "View pass"

  2. You will see your assigned desk, if you want to view the map click "View"

  3. You can zoom in to find your specific desk.

Changing your desk as an employee

  1. Click the "Change desk" button when viewing the map

  2. Select a desk on your current floor, or change the floor you're viewing from the dropdown menu in the top right-hand corner, and select a desk on that floor

  3. Click "Confirm desk selection" once you have chosen the desired desk


  • If an employee changes their desk, they will be asked if their desk has been cleaned. If they say no, their desk will not be changed.

  • If an employee changes their desk and meets a specific set of criteria Envoy will remember that changed desk for future days
    ➖ The employee will get the same desk the next day so long as they
    1. Are not already permanently assigned a desk via the Assigned to column within the CSV
    2. Chose a desk within a neighborhood they are assigned to (E.g - They are assigned to Finance but chose a different desk in the finance neighborhood. If they chose a desk in a different neighborhood they would not be automatically assigned that desk the next day)
    3. Someone else is already sitting at that desk when you go to sign in
