This feature can be used to allow a Company to organize itself in different locations.
These can be, for example, different factories or different sites within the same factory.
To that end, it enables an Admin to create and associate locations to the majority of entities on the application (e.g Workers, Production Orders, Users).
Aside from that a Location filter is also added to most entities in Autodesk Prodsmart.
With this, managers have an easier time organizing and analyzing their company’s procedures across different locations.
Note: To enable the Multi Site Feature and create Locations consult with your Account Manager
After enabling Multi Site and creating different locations it is important to update the existing entities affected by the Location filter.
The ones you want to watch out for here are Users, Workers and Production Orders.
We can start by analyzing how this feature affects the User entity. When creating a new User or editing an existing one, you can now select a Location field. Once this is done, whenever that user is logged in they will have the Location filter and field filled by default with the Location that was attributed to them. This means that by default they will have this filter applied when creating or viewing information.
It is also worth noting that when a Location is not specified, all entities will be shown by default.
Workers and Production Orders
For Workers and Production Orders, this feature is especially useful as once it is attributed, the Workers of a given Location will only be able to see the Production Orders of that same Location when using the tablet.
For the remaining entities this Feature does not change any existing functionality, instead it is there to facilitate management and analysis.
