Map viewers show a combination of maps, for example several floors of a building. The main idea is that you place the map viewer on a touch display at the entrance of a building or a floor.
When someone enters the building or floor they can easily see were are the available rooms or desks, and if needed book a room or desk right away.
A map viewer is configured in the portal and consists of a name and the maps you want to show on the map viewer.
You need a map viewer-profile to configure how the map viewer is visualized.
After that you create a device, and choose the map viewer-profile and the map viewer.
Manage map viewers
Log in to the BrightBooking portal with your manager account, and choose Settings > Map viewers.
Now add a new map viewer with the '+' button, or select an existing one to edit.
Configure a map viewer
When you add or edit a map viewer, you can change the setting of that specific map viewer.
A map viewer has a name, which is used within BrightBooking (to link the map viewer to a device, etc.).
The language is used when the map viewer is shown on a display, and by default this is the same as your default language, but if needed you can change it to use a different language.
You can add 'map viewer items' to add maps to the map viewer, and if needed add separators.
This way you can add multiple buildings or zones, depending on the structure of your building(s).
Add each map you want to show, and your good to go!
Map viewer display profile configuration
The map viewer display profile hold shared settings for the map viewers you use.
For general information about profiles, please refer to the general 'profiles' article.
The device settings configures the device in case the map viewer is shown on a certified device (applicable if the map viewer is shown on certified hardware). It is advised to secure the access to the settings on the device itself, and schedule a daily reboot.
The 'visualisation' setting defines if details you want to show the organizer (the person who booked the room or desk) when it's clicked. If you do not want to disclose those details, you can turn off this option.
Screen on/off settings
The screen on/off settings configure when the device should turn the display on and off, in case the map viewer is shown on a certified device (applicable if the map viewer is shown on certified hardware).
