Looking at an Airport Display, arrows are shown next to free meeting spaces and actual meetings.


How do Wayfinding Arrows work:

  1. Each display is assigned a group of arrows matching the resources or meeting spaces in its area
  2. A meeting space will have different arrows pointing at it depending on its location
  3. You may have an arrow set for each display without affecting or attributing arrows to the actual resources
  4. Door Tablet provides 5 sets of arrows in Black, White, Blue, Green and Orange
  5. The arrows supplied by Door Tablet come in groups of 12 each, using letters to represent the direction of navigation
  6. You can create your own arrow designs or use the built-in mechanism

Example: Blue Wayfinding Arrows

Installing your own arrows
You can design your own arrows, name them as you wish and use the same mechanism to ensure the correct arrow is displayed in the correct client.

Create CSS Entries and specify background images as follows:
For each arrow code you use, add a class to your CSS with the prefix "wa_". For example, if you specify an arrow for South East using the chars: "se", the class name will be "wa_se".

CSS sample
.wa_se {
background-image: url("url-to-you-image-for-se.png");
.wa_w {
background-image: url("url-to-you-image-for-w.png"");
