Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How do I create a new building?

To create a new building, you must have Administrator or Building Administrator permissions. If you do not have these permissions, please contact the person responsible for ti&m places in your organization. If you have the necessary permissions, go to the Settings tab in the menu on the left and select Site Administration. Then click Locations. Here you can edit existing buildings or create a new one. Once you have created a new building, the next step is to create a floor and upload the floor plan.

How do I upload a floor plan?

Floor plans serve as an orientation tool for employees. They help them find their reserved workplaces, meeting rooms, and parking spaces. The floor plan should contain only building information such as walls, doors, stairs, etc. All other information such as rooms and their names will be drawn in the next step (see: “How do I add office spaces?”). Unfortunately, it is not possible to edit floor plans in places once they have been uploaded. We recommend that you do this beforehand. If you just want to try out ti&m places, you also have the option to upload a “blank” floor plan.

To upload a floor plan, click a building and select the corresponding floor. Then click + Upload office plan and locate the prepared document on your computer. Now you can scale the floor plan until the proportions are correct.
