A count of users in a workspace or room that can be displayed as icons, numbers, or names. Often used in auditorium or map settings.
A count of users in a workspace or room that can be displayed as icons, numbers, or names. Often used in auditorium or map settings, this allows users choosing a room to see who else is there, or if the room is empty.
How do I add a User Count or List?
Click on the plus sign in the Toolbar and search User Count/List. This will add a blank user count to the room which will display as an icon with a "0" next to it. To configure it, follow the following steps:
- Click on Room in the Toolbar, use the icon to choose a room from the dropdown.
- Drag the user count/list over to the image of the room it's correlated with.
How do I display names, numbers or icons?
You can change the mode of the User Count/List element to display the names of the users, just a number, or an icon to represent each person.
- In the Toolbar, click Display Mode
- This will open a dropdown, and you can choose from the below selection how you would like to the element to display the information. You can also control the display structure of the names here.
Some of the names are too long- how do I get them to show?
If a name appears cut off, you can wrap the text similar to a cell in a spreadsheet. When your user count/list is set to Names or Names in Columns, open the Advanced Properties panel and check Word Wrap, found in the Layout category.
I don't want to count staff- How can I only count the guests in the space?
Using Tags, you can specify to the element which users to count, or ignore. Click on the icon next to User Tag Excludes to select a tag you do not want counted, or next to User Tag Filter to only count users with a certain tag.
How can I set one element to show multiple rooms?
Sometimes, it makes sense for one user count element to show the guests in 2-3 rooms on a map- perhaps you want a count of everyone in a social room without having individual elements for each. You have two options:
You can select multiple rooms to count on set-up. When you follow the instructions above and choose a room to count, simply select more than one room. You'll see them all referenced in the Toolbar.
You can use Tags to tell the element which room tag to count by typing the relevant tag in next to Room Tags. This will cause the element to count or display any user who is in a room that is tagged to match.
This can be extremely useful if you add rooms during your building process, and don't want to have to remember to add them to the user count element. By simply tagging the room, the element will automatically add it to the rooms to count.
