Welcome to another Dome tutorial, this video will show you how to manage the areas in your system.
To access the ‘Areas’ menu, click ‘Manage’, highlight ‘Locations’ and then click on the ‘Areas’ sub-menu.
Displayed in front of you will be a list of all the active Areas in your system. Essentially, areas are a collection of different locations. To find an area quickly, use the search bar located in the top left corner of the page.
To create a new Area, click the ‘New’ button in the bottom left corner. A dialogue box will appear, to create a new Area:
- Enter the Area name
- Enter a description for the Area
- Input a force code
- Finally upload an image/map of the area covered (if there is one available)
It Is not necessary to complete all fields, but the name field is mandatory and will not let you save changes without completing this. When you have finished adding the Area, click ‘Save’ or if you want to continue adding Areas to the system, click ‘Save and Continue’.
Editing an Area is the same process, only instead of clicking on the ‘New’ button, you simply click on the Area you wish to edit.
Administrators can also delete multiple Areas. To do this tick the radio button to the left of one or more of the Areas and click the ‘Delete’ button in the bottom left corner.
Finally, administrators may wish to export a list of Areas on the system. To do this simply click the ‘Excel’ icon in the bottom left.
