The Equipment Hierarchy uses a parent/child structure, down to the area level. Child nodes can be created from the business level down to the department level. The hierarchy can only be updated by Business Administrators, as any changes will impact all users for a particular business.
As an example, we'll look at adding a new conveyor to an existing hierarchy. Expand the Hierarchy on the left of the screen to show the location where the new conveyor is to be added. Hover your mouse over Department (in this example it's called "Conveyor") and if you have the required Business Administrator access, you will see the icon appear.
Click on the icon and select Add Child.
In the Area field, enter the name of the new asset (conveyor) and select the Area Type from the drop down. The Functional Location can be left blank. Click on Save and the new Area will appear in the Hierarchy.
