Understanding Locations

Locations provide maximum flexibility to allow multi-site Digital Menu Board Networks and Touch Screen Applications to be managed from a minimal number of Layouts. Through locations, all the Product Data is dynamically displayed based on the relationship between the Location Reference and the Location assigned to each individual Player. This also allows different currency symbols to be displayed for global deployments.Note: Before setting up Locations, you will need to add products to your Product Library. For instructions on how to do this, please see: Understanding Products (Product Database)

1) From the navigation click on the ‘Products’ icon and select ‘Locations‘:

2) Click on the ‘Create New’ button to create a new Location.

3) Enter a Name for your location. Add a Currency Symbol (if required). Add the Postal Code for the location.


4) Click ‘Save’. This will save the new location and take you back to the main Locations page. You should now see the location listed. Click back on the location to open the properties – this time you should see products listed. Note: If products have not yet been added to your Product Library, please see: Understanding Products (Product Database)
