Different employees need different desk amenities to do their best work. Some need a dual monitor, some need a standing desk, and some need a quiet spot by the window.

With desk amenities, employees can easily filter, find, and book a desk with the tools and setup they need to be productive, comfortable, and happy in the workplace.

Assign amenities to desks so employees can filter for their perfect desk in just a few taps on the Envoy app. For more ideas of what amenities to assign besides a dual monitor or standing desk, check out this blog post.

    Note: If the file downloads without a .csv extension you can add .csv to the file and it will open in any spreadsheet tool

  4. Within the exported file, there will be a column for Amenities that will be the field to edit for each Desk or to create a new Amenity (Amenities should be comma separated for example: standing desk, dual monitor)

  2. Click Re-import CSV

  3. Drag and drop or select the file you want to upload
