Adding Locations

Locations typically describe the facilities in your organization. (City Park, Town Hall, General Hospital, etc.)


For organizations that have multiple campuses or sites, each with multiple facilities on them, you may decide to use Locations to describe the campus. Then you can use Bldg./Units to describe the structures on each campus. *Note: There are user roles in Work Order that can be restricted to the Location level, but not the Bldg./Unit level.

How to Add Locations

  • Click on the Add link in the Actions Menu.
  • Click the Locations link. Fill in the following fields on the Add/Update Location screen:
    • The Location Code is only used for database purposes and does not appear on any pages or reports. If you do not enter a Location Code, the system will generate one for you.
    • Enter the Location Description (the name of the facility or campus).
    • Enter the Address, Number of Occupants, Square Footage, Date Built and any Notes for this location. This information is not required and can be added at any time.
    • If you are using Budget Codes, you can assign one to the location by selecting it here.
    • In order to use this location in Work Order, make sure the Subscribe To MaintenanceEdge Work Order box is checked.
    • Click Save/Next Step.
    • The Assign Users to New Location screen will load giving you the option to assign existing users to the location that you just created. Select the users you wish to assign to the location and then click Assign Selected Users to save.
