How can I map rooms on a floor plan? (advanced / optional)

Rooms are mapped onto a floor plan using X and Y coordinates. These can be determined using a different page type in the Core and copying the information over to the floor plan content page type.

When mapped and linked, rooms will appear in the schedule and link to a floor plan to show the location of the room.

Note: Prior to starting this process floor plan pages will need to be created with a floor plan image uploaded.
