To allow (or to restrict) users from creating new on-the-fly locations from the tools in a Procore project.
Depending upon how you configure the 'Location Settings' in the project's Admin tool, there are two (2) ways locations can be created in a Procore project:
- Allow Users to Create Locations On-the-Fly. This option gives users the ability to click the 'Add New Location' button in any Location drop-down list in a supported Procore tool (see Which Procore tools support the Add New Locations feature?). For example, if a user is creating a submittal and wants to associate a location to submittal, the user can click 'Add New Location' in the drop-down list to add the location to Procore "on-the-fly". See How do I add a multi-tiered location to an item?
- Restrict Users from Creating Locations On-the-Fly. This option limits the creation of locations to users with 'Admin' level permission on the project's Admin tool. Locations only be created with the Location Manager. See Add Tiered Locations to a Project.
