Sometimes you may get more detailed GPS coordinates, or notice a typo in a Location name, or want to add a tag to a Location for better sorting. Here's how to edit an existing location:
In the top navigation menu, click on Administration->Locations.
The Locations Index page will open.
Click on the location you want to edit. This will open details for the location:
To edit the Name, Code, Notes, Tags, Description, Primary Contact, Phone, or Address, simply edit the existing fields.
Once you're in the Locations detail screen, there are three different ways to change GPS coordinates for a location. (For instructions on getting to this screen, click here.)
- If you know the coordinates, edit the text boxes for Latitude and Longitude.
- If you know roughly where the location needs to be, zoom in on the map, click on the blue circle, and drag it to where the location belongs.
- If you don't know where the location should be (only that it's not in the right place), click the Look up location button. This will open a search option that uses Google Map search.
Type in as much information as you have for address or placename and click the Look up button. The system will adjust the latitude/longitude coordinates based on the Google search it performs.
