Location Groups

Location Groups

Locations and Location Groups are the backbone of OpSuite.  They are a main part of almost every section and feature used.  Locations are created in a tiered hierarchy, that allows you to group locations into location groups, that will merge into the Enterprise.  Below is an example of how the location tiers are organized.
 
*Always consult your implementation specialist before creating new locations and/or location groups, as this could change your OpSuite billing structure.

Location Groups are attached to each tier of the location hierarchy to make up the various regions, districts, or other groups of locations   the user will need. The information provided on the location group record shows the location group hierarchy, and where the location group fits into the hierarchy, along with the locations that are attached to the Location Group, if applicable. Location Groups are associated with Locations. 
   
To create a new location group, click New Location Group button from the top left of the Location Group table.  First, enter the Group Code, which can be an abbreviation of the Group Name, then enter the Group Name.  You will then select the Parent Location Group and a brief description of the location group.  The Enterprise will be at the top of the list, and is the highest tier.  You can select the Enterprise, which will put your new location group in the 2nd tier, directly under the Enterprise, or you can create a location group under an existing 2nd tier location group.  An example of that could be a mall location group, that will have multiple kiosks within the mall.  Each kiosk will be set up as a separate location. 

   
Once your location group is saved, you can start adding locations and users.
 
At the bottom of the Location Group page, you will see Location Group Details.  This will show you all locations, users and tags assigned.  You can click on individual locations and employees, and you will be taken to that particular record.
