Customize your location structure by adding your own location objects under the default location group objects.

Note:
  • You cannot create a location object at the master location list level. You can only create a location object within the city location level.
  • You cannot edit or delete any master location lists.
  • Location filtering applies only to the table you are viewing. For example, if you are viewing the country locations, you can only search or filter by country names. Similarly, if you are viewing city locations, you can only search or filter by city name.
  • You can filter locations by name and partial names (minimum two characters).

To add a custom location object:

  1. Select the Groups tab. Tabs remember the page on which you last worked, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Groups page.
  2. Click the Locations tab.
  3. Select a default master location list (that is, a city) in which to create your custom location object.
    Note: To create your custom location, you must navigate down to the city location level. For example, if you want to add a location object for an office in Toronto, you must navigate to Canada > Toronto and create your custom location under Toronto. You cannot add any custom location objects to the default master location lists that have been imported from the UN/LOCODE database.
  4. Under Locations, click New.
  5. Under Location, set the following options:
    • Name— enter the name for the location that you are adding. For example, Toronto or New York.
    • Localized Name— enter the name of the location in your local language. For example, for Tokyo Office 1 in Japan, you can enter 東京オフィス1 in Japanese. If your location name contains diacritic marks, you can enter the name with diacritic marks in this field as well. For example, Montréal.
    • Location Code— enter a location code for the location that you are adding. You can enter any 1 to 3 alphanumeric characters. This location code does not represent the LOCODE column in the UN/LOCODE database. The location code that you are adding or editing will be appended after the first 5-character country and location code.
      • Hierarchical Code— displays the hierarchical code structure for the location that you are adding or editing. The first 5-characters indicate the standard UN/LOCODE country code and location code. Any codes after the first 5-characters represent your own custom location structure.
    • Latitude— enter a geographical coordinate specifying the north-south position of the location in decimal degrees format. If the parent location has coordinates specified, the values will be inherited to the child location that you are adding. You can also update the value of coordinates to specify the exact geographic position of your location.
    • Longitude— enter a geographical coordinate specifying the east-west position of the location in decimal degrees format. If the parent location has coordinates specified, the values will be inherited to the child location that you are adding. You can also update the value of coordinates to specify the exact geographic position of your location.
    • Description— Enter the description of the location that you are adding.
  6. Under Change Control, add comments, if required.
