Introduction

A location is a physical address that can have devices associated with it. You can assign it coordinates and if there are devices assigned, the location will appear on the Map in Open-AudIT Enterprise.

How Does it Work?

Locations are used to assign devices to and will appear on the map in Open-AudIT Enterprise if they have any devices.

Creating a Location

Join Paul McClendon, an Opmantek Support Engineer, as he demonstrates how to create locations in Open-AudIT

To make another location go to menu:  Manage -> Locations -> Create Location.

 

View Location Details

Go to menu: Manage -> Locations -> List Locations.

You will see a list of Locations. You can view a Location by clicking on the blue view icon. You can also edit or delete your locations.
