How to Setup Site Locations
Site locations are a critical component of incident analytics. This tool is completely customizable and flexible enough map out any site in a simple outline format. It is recommended that the site locations be identified in collaboration with the client. Some sites may be setup with a granular site locations list where others may be more basic and high-level.

1. Access Site Locations
Creating Site Locations and Sections will allow your officers to tag these locations in their reports. That data is then fed into the Incident Analytics module to show which locations on the property experience the highest number of incidents. To access site locations, follow the steps below.
- From the Live Dashboard, click on the "Sites (Client)" tile to access the site list. Locate the desired site and click on the name of the site or the [View] button to access the site profile.
- Select the "Security & Patrol" tab from the site profile.
- In the "Patrol Menu," click on the "Site Locations & Sections" menu option.
2. Create Site Locations (Manually or Import)
- Import Batch: If you have a list of site locations you can use the Import Batch option. Paste the list of site locations into the pop-up window and click the [Save] button to automatically populate the list into the Site Locations.
- Create a Site Location: If you are adding a new Site Location or starting from scratch you can add Site Locations one at a time by completing the form at the top of the screen. The Type of Item is just for reference and it is an optional field. Note that the [Enter] button on your keyboard will perform the same task as the [Save] button in the application. For this reason it is recommended that groups of locations be created at once. For example, if the property has five floors. Simply type in "Floor 1" [Enter] backspace over the number 1 and replace it with 2 - "Floor 2" [Enter]. Next move on to all staircases or office suites using the same process. This is an efficient way to add a list of locations one at a time.
Note - To expedite the process of adding site locations ignore the Type of Item. This can be added later without any loss of functionality to officers in the field.
3. Organize Site Locations in Outline Format
Drag and drop the Site Locations into place. Note that you can indent locations under others. Above Server Room\Room B is indented under Floor 3. Officer will be able to view the structure on their device when they tag a location. In this case the officer would know that Server Room\Room B is on the 3rd floor.
4. Edit an Existing Site Location
You can edit an existing Site Location by clicking the [Edit] button for that location. You can also delete unused or irrelevant site locations by clicking on the [Delete] button. In either case click the [Save] button to complete the modification.
5. Geo Tag Site Locations
Click on the location icon next to the [Edit] button to mark the location on a satellite map view. Click the location of this Site Location on the map to drop a pin. Click the [Save] button to finish.
