Use Location Packages to determine a set of Locations that are available for a job. Use them if you have a large number of Cost Locations, and don't want to see them all in every transaction, when you do data entry in the Goldenseal accounting software.
Use location packages if you have a long list of locations, and want to restrict the ones that show for each type of job.
EXAMPLE-- a construction company might want to have packages that include items inside a building, and outside a building.
To set Goldenseal so it uses Location Packages, follow these steps:
NOTE-- If you turn off the Use Location Packages checkbox, the Location field will always show all locations.
To enter a Location Package, follow these steps:
The Location Package shows a list of Locations. Click on the checkmark for each item that you want to include in this package.
HINT-- Click the Edit Locations button to enter new locations, or change the ones you already have.
Enter the following information for each Location Package:
Name-- Type in a brief name for this package. This is the text that will appear in clairvoyant fields.
Enter a Location Package into the Location Package field in Customer accounts,
Overhead accounts and Project accounts.
NOTE-- If you don't enter a location package, Goldenseal will show all locations in the Locations field, when you enter transactions for that job account.
