Administration / Setup / Locations

 

Explanation

ExpressMaintenance allows you to define unlimited Sites and Locations for each Site.  Sites is really a loose term that can be different cities, buildings, terminals or warehouses, etc.  Locations are generally specific buildings, departments or divisions.  An additional field is available in the Parts screen for the actual shelf / bin where the part may be found.

 

Notes

You can limit users to only access a specific site when they access ExpressMaintenance.  This way, the user will only see Units (equipment), Parts, Work Orders and employees associated with their designated Site.  All Locations within the Site will be available to the User.  You cannot limit by Location.
