FAQ: What are Locations?
In Silvertrac, the Location is NOT the physical address of the property. Locations are common areas on a property "where" issues and incidents can occur and be reported by your officers.
If you were to call an officer on a specific property and ask "where" they are beyond the physical address, they would likely give you a specific location such as, the lobby, the loading dock, the guard shack, etc,.
Locations help the officer include more detail than just the primary address of the property in a report quickly and easily.
For example: reporting a "light out" at 123 Main St. vs. 123 Main St. Electrical Room.
