How To Manage Equipment in SpaceView

Viewing Equipment in SpaceView

SpaceView allows for users to locate equipment, but equipment can also be added, viewed, moved, or deleted from within SpaceView. Any additional equipment information beyond equipment code, equipment standard, and equipment location must be managed from within Web Central.

Viewing Equipment

Equipment can be viewed both within the equipment module by searching for it, as well as in the geography highlight it if has an icon associated with it.

Searching for Equipment: To look up a specific piece of equipment by its code, or to review a list of all equipment, click on Locator and then Equipment to navigate to the equipment search.

Enter the equipment ID you wish to search for, or the equipment standard to view all equipment of that standard, or simply click search without any criteria to view a complete list of all equipment.

Once the search results come up, click on the equipment record you wish to review and it will bring up its location with room highlighted. If your equipment has an icon that will show as well.

Next to view you can select a view from the dropdown to see more information about the equipment. The views are

  1. Equipment Summary – View but not edit equipment data
  2. Equipment Edit – Edit equipment data fields, currently you are only able to edit the equipment standard here or upload an image.
    1. Note: this is where you would edit equipment data if you wished to include more equipment details in the future. This access is usually restricted to users with the SV_ADMIN SpaceView Security group.
  3. Floor Plan – view the equipment icon on the floorplan or room highlighted.

Viewing Equipment Location: to view the equipment on a particular floorplan, navigate to Geography and select your desired site, building, and floor from the navigation tree on the left. Then select the equipment highlight by selecting “Equipment” from the view dropdown.

This will bring up all your equipment icons on the floorplan. In the legend you will see all the equipment standards on your floorplan, or categories if you are grouping by category. If you click on the checkboxes next to the standard it will show only equipment with those standards on the floorplan.
