Cost Locations Not Showing

Problem

Location(s) not showing in clairvoyant fields for Goldenseal construction estimating software. This can be a problem for Estimates, or when entering job costs.

Diagnosis

When a Location is not showing up, there are two possible causes:

  1. the Job Account, Estimate, etc is not using a Location Package that includes that item.
  2. the Location is not included in the Location Package that is currently being used

HINT-- Location Packages help you to 'narrow down' the list of possible locations. That can be useful if you are tracking completely different types of locations.

Solution

To use a different Location Package, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the Location Package field. You may need to click the More Info button (or some other button) to see it.
  2. Click on the triangle next to the field, and choose a different Location Package from the list.
  3. That will change the Locations that appear in the Location clairvoyant field

To add a Location to a Location Package, follow these steps

  1. Choose Location Setup from the Costs menu, and choose Location Packages from the submenu
  2. Double-click on the Location Package you want to use
  3. Scroll in the list until you see the desired Location, then put a check by it.
  4. Click OK to save changes.
  5. Click Done to close the list of Location Packages.
