Welcome to another DOME tutorial, this video will show you how to manage locations in the system.
Locations are created within the locations sub-menu. To access them go to the ‘Manage’ menu, highlight the ‘Locations’ section and click the ‘Locations’ sub-menu.
Displayed in front of you will be a list of active locations in the system. Depending on the size of your jurisdiction your locations may be across multiple pages. To quickly find a location, use the search bar in the top left corner. You can also use the drop-down filter next to the search bar to display either: active locations, inactive locations, or all locations. To add a new location, click the ‘New’ button in the bottom left corner.
A new dialogue box opens, users will need to add the following information:
- Location name
- Location address
- Location code
- National location code
- Location direction
- Select a road type from the drop-down menu
- Finally select an area from the drop-down menu
The fields, name, code, location direction and road type drop-down are all mandatory. You will be unable to save a new location if these fields are left blank.
The ‘Misc documents’ tab is where location maps are stored. Please see our video on adding location maps for further information.
To edit a location in the system is a very similar process. Simply click and select the location you wish to edit from the list and amend any of the fields in the dialogue box.
It is important to click the ‘Save’ button when you want to save your new or amended locations or the ‘Save and continue’ button should you wish to continue to add new locations.
Administrators can also delete or deactivate multiple Locations. To do this tick the radio button to the left of one or more of the Locations and click the ‘Delete’ or ‘Deactivate’ buttons in the bottom left corner.
Administrators may wish to download an Excel spreadsheet of locations in the system. This can be done by clicking the ‘Microsoft Excel’ button in the bottom left corner.
