The Dashboard provides visual trends and insights into the number of people and contact events occurring among people at the workplace. The Dashboard allows managers to understand how occupants use the workplace and where contact events occur by displaying data for specific periods. The data-driven insights enable managers to reduce workplace risk by measuring risk in real-time and adjusting workplace policies and layout of space and furniture.
By default, the Dashboard shows the activity for the entire real estate portfolio. You can filter to display data by specific campus, building, or floor using the Options icon (three dots) to select the appropriate portfolio hierarchy level.
For example, the default Portfolio-level view shows data for the busiest and riskiest campuses in the portfolio. A campus-level view would show the data for all buildings in the selected campus, and a building-level view would show data for all the floors in the building. Selecting a particular floor would show data for each area on that floor.
You can change parameters that determine a contact event, such as proximity and duration in Settings, a system-wide setting that applies to all users. See Configure Settings.
This article explains the following Dashboard widgets:
Total Over Time
Displays trends in the number of unique people and unique contacts for the selected hierarchy level for the selected date range. Visualizing this information over a 30-day period enables managers to quickly detect an increase in the number of people occupying the selected workplace or a surge in the number of contact events. You can display the number of unique people and unique contacts for a particular day by hovering over the trend lines for that day.
The days are represented on the x-axis and the number of people and contacts on the y-axis. To change the duration period, select a specific date range from the calendar on the Dashboard's top-right corner.
For example, the image below shows the daily totals and a summary of Total, Average, and Peak metrics for the entire period from 11 November to 09 December. You can also drag the sliders at either end of the chart to view the metrics for a smaller time period.
For example, using the sliders to look at metrics for the week of November 15-21 shows that daily contact events were rapidly increasing.
After changing some workplace policies during the week of Nov 22-28, the data for Nov 29-Dec. 05 reveals a reduction in contact events even though the number of people remains at similar levels.
Displays the total number of people occupying the workplace for the selected time range, including the Total, Daily Average, and Daily Peak values. For example, a Total value of 100 means that 100 unique people were present in the workplace at some time during the date range selected by the sliders. The Daily Peak value of 75 means that there were never more than 75 people in the workplace at any one time. This is useful to measure and enforce maximum workplace occupant limits. The Daily Average value of 52 represents the average number of people in the workplace each day for the selected date range.
A unique contact occurs when two people spend at least a certain amount of time within a certain distance of each other. The duration and proximity settings (set in Configure Settings) determine what triggers a contact event. For example, if the Duration is 15 minutes and the Proximity is 6 feet, a contact event will be triggered if two people spend at least 15 minutes within 6 feet of each other, such as seated next to each other in a conference room. Once the people move apart, the contact event is closed and logged. If the same two people move to meet again later that day, for example, eating lunch together in the break room, and are within 6 feet of each other for at least 15 minutes, a new contact event will be created.
Ranks and displays the top 10 busiest spaces based on the number of unique people for the chosen date range. Identifying the most active locations will help you focus on implementing effective risk reduction strategies around these areas.
The Spaces shown are based on the selected hierarchy level chosen through the Select Location panel.
In this example, the hallway is the busiest space with 83 unique people on the floor. The organization could reduce traffic in the hallway by providing other entrances and planning for additional routes. Please note that a “Busy” space does not by itself indicate a high level of risk. The Hallway is the busiest because all visitors to the workplace travel along it; the Contacts metric will reveal whether the people are using the Hallway in a safe or in a risky manner.
Displays the top 10 riskiest spaces based on the number of contacts that occurred for the selected date range. Identifying high-risk areas where many contact events occur helps the organization focus strategies and tactics around these areas to reduce risk.
You can filter to display data by campus, building, or floor from Options in the Select Location panel.
For example, when the Dashboard data revealed that 189 contacts occurred in the break room, occupants were encouraged to eat meals at their desks or outside, furniture was rearranged within the break room, and under-utilized spaces in the workplace were designated as overflow break areas. In subsequent weeks, the Dashboard showed a decrease in the number of contacts in the break room.
The Tree Map visually displays the relative importance of campuses or floors based on where the number of people and contacts occur. The Tree Map is displayed when an organization or building is selected from the More options in the Select Location panel.
The number of people or contacts is represented by the size and color intensity of the rectangle.
For example, the floor named 'Demo' had the most people visits than other floors in the building.
Likewise, Unique Contacts display the number of contacts that occur in the areas. You can switch between Unique People and Unique Contacts tabs to view corresponding data.
When you click on a floor in the Tree Map or select a floor in the Select Location panel, the Tree Map displays a Floorplan showing the layout of the customer-defined Spaces. Within each Space is a number representing either the number of Unique People who occupied that Space within the selected date range or the number of Unique Contacts that occurred in that Space during the selected date range.
The darker the color intensity, the greater the number of people or contacts in the space relative to other spaces. You can zoom in and out or reset the floor plan using tools in the toolbar. Hovering the cursor over the floor plan rooms or spaces displays the number of unique people and contacts in that area.
You can switch between the two tabs: Unique People (blue) or Unique Contacts (orange) to display the relevant quantity.
In the example below, Collaboration Area 4 saw an increase in the number of contacts even though the number of people was low. By replacing sofas with chairs and other changes, a significant drop in the number of Contacts was achieved in subsequent weeks.
A significant drop in the number of Contacts in Collaboration Area 4 was noticed after furniture changes were made.
