Previously, the Geography & Access page was based on a Tree structure that was a bit challenging to navigate. Furthermore, there was no clear structure of the geographical hierarchy.
To alleviate these issues, we have redesigned the Geography & Access page to make it a lot easier to navigate and also create hierarchical levels based on pre-defined levels.
|0||Global||The whole world. This cannot be modified or removed.||NA|
|1||Region||Continents or global regions.||North America, Asia, Europe, Africa|
|2||Cluster||Groups of Countries (optional)||East Africa Cluster, Indian-Subcontinent, South-East Asia|
|3||Country||Individual Countries||India, Kenya, USA, Argentina|
|4||State||State within a country (optional)||Rajasthan, Nevada, California|
|5||Area||Areas within a State (optional)||Any area with a state - but larger than a city, containing one or more cities|
|6||City||Cities or towns||New York, London, Nairobi, Cape Town|
|7||Location (Depot)||Specific locations / coordinates||Any port, factory, ICD, depot, warehouse, customer address with a well-defined location|
Based on the above table, your organisation's hierarchy can be defined in a more structured manner. Workflows can be assigned to any two geographic entities (except Locations).
