Importing Rooms

You can import rooms from a tab-delimited file into a building, area, or view that you select. (See Also: Room Import File Specifications). After you import rooms, you must edit the configuration (setup type, features, images, and so on) for each room.

1. On the EMS menu bar, click Configuration > Facilities > Rooms. The Rooms window opens.
