In order to make the process of adding items more efficient, you are able to set up and manage the list of locations available from the Locations pop-up ahead of time. This can be done at the project level so that they are available on all of your lists.
See also: Add & manage location drawings (Enterprise plans only) to add PDF or JPEG drawing files to your locations so that you can pin your items to them.
If you would like to bulk import locations from an existing database then you can do so using the import feature. See Bulk import assignees & locations.
Don't worry you can also add to this list at the item level too.
- The term Location may have been customised to something more relevant to your workflow under the project settings.
- Upon updating or removing a location, all associated items within the project will be updated too. The items will still be there but their list of locations will be updated in line with your changes.
