Locations and sub locations can be added into your Creative Force instance to better track the flow of products as they move around your studio from set to set, or to and from your warehouse. This gives you complete visibility of where an item is at any point in the creative process.
How to add a new location
Navigate to the menu "Studio Settings", under 'Production Settings' and select "Locations".
Here you will find a list of already created locations and have the option to add new ones. Click on "Add" to create a new location and give it a name.
Click ‘Next’, you now see the settings box appear. You can also access these settings by hovering to a location then clicking ‘edit’.
Location name: Change the location name whenever needed
Location code: Put in your location code
Location type. This will give you more context about the location. Creative Force offers eight different location types: Studio, Set, Wardrobe, Distribution center, Stock room, Styling, Preparation, and Other
Enable/ disable: When the location is disabled then all the samples within it will be released
Check-in: if a sample is scanned to a computer with this location it is automatically Checked-in
Add a physical address to the location.
Sub-locations allow you to have a granular breakdown of different areas of a location. You could break down a room in a warehouse into the different clothing rails that you have, or prop locations. You can add as many locations and sub-locations as you wish.
These need to be created via properties and then added to the specific location they relate to.
You can print the location’s barcode and also sub-locations barcode. Scanning the location’s barcode will allow you to bulk change the location of the containers and samples within it.
