Did version 22 lose the zone tags w/ occupancy calcs in it? Can seem to find it in the three defaults provided.
Thanks Tom

Zone occupancy was moved to an expression. Its display is controlled under content - classifications & properties. Double check that you are using the correct scale factor.

The calculation is the expression "occupants" which is basically occupant load divided into measured area. The occupant load is set manually. If you want the load to be set based on the occupant group, you would have to create another expression or just alter the occupant option list.

Can't seem to get the zone tag to link to the occupancy classification. How can I get the tag to display occupancy classification, s.f. per person, and total occupant load. Is that even possible. And where did the occupancy of 16 come from. Any help would be appreciated. The guide is pretty worthless with regards to zone tags and this connection...
Thanks, Tom

The occupancy field is not used in the the zone calculation expression (could be). The formula used to calculate the number of occupants/zone is: meas area / occupant load. Looking at your image, there is not sufficient info to determine the problem area but I would say that the zone stamp was altered manually to give that result show with a custom field,

You could alter the expression formula to calculate based on the area type but that would require entering addition info - not a difficult process since you only have do it once.

To see what was altered manually -- take a look at the "classifications and properties" field under zone settings. Otherwise just accept the defaults but the zone load still has to be entered manually. -- All this - Assuming your using the US version??
