Intranet Tip: Show Office Locations on Employee Profiles

In brief: Add a field to employee profiles for desk locations and link to interactive office floor maps.

The University of Wisconsin created a custom field on employee profiles to list desk location numbers. Then they built a simple custom app that mapped each and every desk location to highlighted spaces on office floor-maps. Now, employees can see exactly where any other colleague sits so they can find each other easily. If your employees travel between offices this functionality will make connecting so much easier!
