Updated over a week ago


Envoy Map Insights can provide suggestions for space planning using your existing occupancy and reservation data. These insights can guide you when planning out the most effective use of your space. Once enabled, these insights will be available at all locations.

To enable:

Only a global admin will be able to enable this feature.

  1. Under Data of individuals, toggle to ON.

Using Attendance Insights:

These employee attendance insights are shown when editing the live map or creating a map draft.

  1. Navigate to your desired location, then go to

    1. Maps > Live Map > Edit Map to edit the live map

  2. Once you're in Edit mode, click on Manage Seating > Insights in the upper left-hand corner.

  3. Once Insights has been turned on, you'll see space planning suggestions based on your own occupancy data.

  4. Clicking on an individual employee will give you suggestions based on their attendance habits. In our example below, Maggie Aquino isn't assigned a desk, but Insights tell us that she comes in 4 days a week. Based on this data, it would be a good idea to assign Maggie a desk!
