Task 1: Add a Floorplan (for new sofia clients in the Cloud)

Use one of the procedures below to add a floorplan if you are a new Cloud sofia client.

Notes

  • If you migrated from Vision or installed sofia from scratch, your map should already be in place, as outlined in the Installation section. If this is the case, proceed to Task 2: Add Zones to Your Floorplan.
  • Use Steps for CMX Integration if your organization uses a CISCO network to integrate the map (or maps) into sofia. (CISCO DNA Spaces will replace CMX. The new offering is cloud-based and offers a broader range of IoT integration and location services.)
  • Use Steps for New Map if your organization does not use a CISCO network.
Steps for CMX Integration
  1. At the Home page, click Maps to display the sites page, which will be blank at this point.
