Location Groups Overview

Location groups are the collection of the different locations clubbed in one group. If some of the locations are in the same region/zone and all the setups/configurations are similar, you can put them into one group to apply all the configurations just by selecting that location group.

Location Groups will be utilized in different modules, such as applying discounts/buydowns, assigning vendors and vendor parts, getting the report data by grouping location groups or filtering the specific location group(s), and many others.

One location will be associated with multiple location groups.
