Move location

This new function allows users to move locations within their account hierarchy in the Checkit Control Centre.   

It applies to Work Management and Automated Monitoring as they share the same location configuration 

It can be found in the Work Management or Automated Monitoring Configuration screen (under “Where”) 

Functionality 

The function allows a user to select a new parent location for the location currently being viewed. 

 

Simple move example 

In the example above, suppose site C in the left-hand diagram is to be moved into District 2 for administrative reasons. This is achieved by 

  • Selecting Site C in the “Where” configuration screen 

  • Navigating to “move location” 

  • Selecting a new parent location of District 2. 

The configuration will then be as shown in the right-hand diagram.  All Checkpoints, Memos, apps, sensors, hubs and repeaters belonging to Site C will move with it.  Reports in the Control Centre for that location will be unaffected. If you are using Operational Insights then the location and its data will be reported in their new location. 

 

Moving a location that has children 

Where a location has children, all the children move with it.  Consider the situation below.  Now a reorganisation is to move District 2 and all the sites within it to Region 2.  This is achieved by 

  • Selecting District 2 in the “Where” configuration screen 

  • Navigating to “move location” 

  • Selecting a new parent location of Region 2. 

As shown District 2 and all its children (Sites D and E in this example) will be moved. 

Also note 

The system will not let you choose a child’s child site as a new parent (which would in any case be confusing) 

Using this feature will impact on what others see and experience in Checkit. So for example the Region 1 manager will no longer see several sites in their account after the change above, while a Region 2 manager will see new ones. 

We advise mapping out your before and after structure before reshaping large accounts.
