Floor Plan Display

From Door Tablet V7.6, it is possible to create an Interactive Floor plan for desks, rooms and any other resource you can reserve in your business.


From Door Tablet V8.1 you can switch floors on the same display and add a key to the display. See images at the bottom of this document.

To implement a floor plan display, the following steps are required:

  1. Identify the available dimensions of your actual display
  2. Create a floor plan image (check out https://www.smartdraw.com)
  3. Upload the above image to a neighbourhood settings document
  4. Edit the floor plan map to link resources to map areas
  5. Open the neighbourhood in the Door Tablet app and select Floor Plan

Identify the available dimensions
To optimise the design of your display it is recommended that you create your floor plans closest to the dimensions offered by your display. If you do not have the display you may estimate it and adjust it later.
The simplest way to do this is to upload an image to the neighbourhood settings document, add one mapping and then view it on the display. For around ten seconds the display will report dimensions of both what is available and what you have uploaded. You can use that information to adjust your image. Please note that Door Tablet will scale your image without distortion, taking full advantage of either the available width or height of the display.


Save a floor plan image
Open the Settings record for the neighbourhood, or create a new one, as follows:


add a floor plan image


Note: if you wish to change the image you uploaded to Door Tablet, delete the current one and save the record first. After uploading a new image refresh the page to ensure you see the latest image.

Map resources to elements in your plan
Once you saved a floor plan image the following button will show in the view...


Linking resources and image areas:

Note: you must draw ALL the resources that participate - failing to do so will result in the inability to review a plan nor use it later.


Please note that to remove a drawn shape you can click on the "Clear" button below the image. You may also drag dots to adjust your mapping.

Review your work
Once you have finished mapping all resources, save your work and click on Preview. Move the mouse over areas to check these are correct...



Effect of Floor Plan switching
When you set Door Tablet plans to offer switching the title of the plan will show:
  1. The name or display name of participating plans
  2. Display the names of the inactive plans in lower opacity
Note: please ensure that your names are short so that fit in the available space, and remember that you can change the text size to meet your requirements.



and, after switching:


Avoid Jumps
When a floor plan loads the Door Tablet App will resize your image and place it in the middle of the available space, which causes movement of the image on the screen. This effect is acceptable when you use a single plan as this opens once only. When using a Plan Switching such movements should be, and can be, eliminated. To do so please ensure your images, of all floor plans, consume the entire available space, in both width and height, priestly. The available size will show when you open the floor plan display for the first time.
