This article shows a User how to add Floor Plans to Hippo.

Definitions

Floor Plans: A floor plan is a visual representation of a floor or area in a building. It is also the combination of a Section and a Level in the Hippo system.

Note: In the Advanced View version of the Hippo software, a User can upload an image of the floor plan, upon which locations and equipment can be plotted. In the Standard View version, a User can easily name the Floor Plan, and with which locations and equipment can be associated.

After entering a Facility (see Facility guide), access the Facility Admin Panel and open the Floor Plans grid.

Note: Ignore if using the Standard View version.

5. Select which Level this Floor Plan is on.

Note: A Floor Plan can only be a one-time combination of a Section and a Level.
