Claim – Desk can be reserved through the Flowscape app.
Take – Desk cannot be reserved but turns red on the map when someone is seated.

- The desk type name you choose will be seen on the Desks quickview on the billboard and in the app
- Lets take touch down desk as an example, you can see that the mode for this desk type is “Take”, which means that desks in this category is not reservable.
- We can also see that the desk is visible on the map. If "YES" was selected in the Hidden column, desk would be invisible in the app and billboard.
- We can also see something called “Presence time out”, this governs how long a desk remains red on the map after someone has walked away.
- In this example, "presence time out" is 0min, which means that the desk will turn green as soon as someone leaves the desk.
- If the desk is reservable, you have to release your desk with the app for it to turn green.
