Before You Create Your Locations and General Structure

Taking a moment to think about the structure of your locations can save you time later on (but you can easily add, remove, and reorganize later). Sketch out your general structure before hand. How detailed do you want to be? Remember, user permissions are based primarily on what locations they have access to. Below are examples of various structures you can create; you'll notice the system is very flexible.

Examples:

Single Building, Very Basic

Dickson
- Logger 1
- Logger 2
- Logger X

This shows the primary location (the Company Name from your account settings) with loggers below it. All loggers are at Dickson.
