Using Regions


The regions keyword populates the Building Region drop-down and it displays a region hierarchy. After you have created your building and assign it a region (country and city) then the region hierarchy and the building name is used in the Location selector, for example in the Spaces Module Locator selector, and the VBS module's Locator selector, Workplace Locator selector, and other modules with Location selectors.

When you have many buildings in locations, you can set up the region hierarchy to include:

  • Region, Country, and City - this is a detailed hierarchy the requires the user to navigate through the levels.
  • City - this is a brief hierarchy that the user can quickly navigate.

Region, Country, and City Example

In this example, the region hierarchy is set up to display from the region, country, and city.

This keyword has a particular setup for the region hierarchy to display in the correct order and the example above is set up as:

Keyword

Parent

Top-Level Region

No Parent

This is the top-level region so it displays as a blank entry.

North America

Top-Level Region

United States

California

Colorado

Connecticut

Florida

When you are in the Block and Stack (VBS) module, for example, you will navigate to the building via the region, country, and city to select the building.

Parent and Child

When you add the new region you must select the parent, either:
