Locations/Functions tab in Space General options

Overview

Locations and functions allow you to give users access to large areas of designated access points and specific categories of permissions within them. This enables easier access management in large installations. You can add groupings for locations and functions by using the Locations/Functions tab. This is not mandatory. However, it is recommended that you do this to organize your locations and functions. For example, if an organization has multiple offices in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth, you can create a separate grouping for all of the offices in each of these cities.

When you add a location grouping, a Location grouping drop-down list is displayed on the Access points > Location information screen. You can select a group from the list to add the location to the specified group.

Similarly, when you add a function grouping, a Function grouping drop-down list is displayed on the Function information screen. You can then select a group to which you want to add the function.

See Locations and Functions for a definition and information about how to create and associate a location and a function.

Note that the locations and functions functionality is license-dependent. See Registering and licensing Space for more information or contact your SALTO representative.
