What are locations and how are they organised?

Locations can be entered manually or via an import (with the assistance of the Ocasta team). Each location has a location type and is assigned to a region.

Each user will be allocated to a specific location, this allows you to target content by location. For example you may want to target by region and let users in the East of England know that there is a weather warning and it may affect their journey to work. Alternatively you may want to target users by location type, for example you may only want staff in warehouses to receive a notification about the delay of deliveries. Or you may only want staff in head office to complete your checklists on GDPR.

How do I create location types?

With Oplift you can separate your users by the kind of location they are working in. This is useful for targeting different content which would only be relevant to each location type. Some examples of different location types are, Warehouse, office, home or store.

  1. Click ‘Locations’ in the left side bar
  2. In the subcategories select ‘Location Types’
  3. Add name - e.g. Warehouse
  4. Once you have completed, press the ‘Add New Location Type’ button
  5. Your new location type should appear in the table on the right. You can select any location type in the table to make edits.

How do I create regions ?

You can enter regions that you want to cover all locations of your business. They can be multi-level e.g. Europe - UK - Brighton

  1. Click ‘Locations’ in the left side bar
