Redesigned Geography & Access

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.

Level Name Description Example
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).

The new Geography & Access page can be seen above - along with the actions that can be taken on the page, provided the user has the permission.
