Nav Menu » Settings \ Storage Locations

From the Nav Menu on the left-hand side of the screen, select the Settings icon (it looks like a wheel), then from the menu select Storage Locations. You are now on the Storage Locations screen. From here, you can Add and Edit Storage Locations as well as Create and Print Labels for them.

There are many instances where we will import Storage Locations from another system and give you some relevant information needed to move these into a proper format.

The first indicator that you have storage locations that need to be reorganized would be the ‘Import Locations’ parent location that you see here. FYI, this might be named Imported Locations for some clients.

The blue “+” to the left indicates that there are storage locations below this storage location name. Click the “+” button to see all of them.

It is recommended you have two root level locations. One called Permanent (Lockers) and another called Temporary (Lockers). This will not only help better organize your Storage Locations but will also allow you to apply permissions to these root storage locations and have every child granted permissions based on the parent level access. In this case, we created the following storage locations:

The objective is to move these storage locations into a more proper alignment in the root folder.

So what do the numbers to the left of each storage location name mean? These numbers are here to help you know what the parent/child ID was from the previous system. The first number in the example above is 1028 which indicates the ID of this storage location. The next number in the example above is 1, which indicates the parent ID for that storage location. So, it’s easy to tell all of these storage locations were children of storage location ID 1.

We need to go down the list and find every storage location with a parent ID 1 and move those storage locations to the root directory for this example:
