Creating Locations

Locations in Hyperview are considered groups for containing assets. If a location is nested within another location, the nested location is referred to as a “child” location.

To Add a Location

  1. Go to Assets > Add New > Select “Location”.
  2. Enter details. In the absence of a parent location, select “All”.
  3. Click Add, then either:
    • Add and Continue With New Values to start with blank fields for subsequent entries; or
    • Add and Continue With Same Values to repeat the entered values (except for Name) for subsequent entries.

The location will appear in the Hierarchy tree under its parent location.

To Add a Location Layout

Location layouts in Hyperview let you visually interact with a given location. These can include (but aren’t limited to) floor plans, room images, and building pictures.

  1. Go to the location in the Hierarchy tree > Layout tab > Edit > Tools > Add Background Image.
  2. Select a background image of your location.
  3. Go to Edit > Tools > Add one of the grid options to your layout (Grid - Auto Generate, Grid - Rectangle, or Grid - Polygon).

To Add a Location Map

You can add a location map to get a top-down Google Maps view of your location and its children.

Note

This is only applicable if there is at least one child location.

  1. Select a child location in the Hierarchy tree > Information tab > Properties.
  2. Under Contact, enter a value for the Address field.
  3. Select the parent location in the Hierarchy tree > Layout tab > Edit.
  4. Select Mode > Map Mode > Save.
