To comply with social distancing concerns and Covid-19 regulations, Companion now offers optional conditional access capabilities for enhanced occupant safety. When applied, conditional access limits access to buildings to ensure that occupant numbers do not exceed a safe capacity. To access a building with conditional access, occupants must have a workspace reservation or meeting booking, and occupants cannot reserve a workspace or meeting room if the building is fully booked for that day. Administrators can grant key workers special privileges to ensure that they always have building access. Users receive a lock-out message when denied building access.

When applied, conditional access is another cue to occupants as they adjust behavior and find their hybrid work balance, helping with decision making and safety on this journey.
