For easier management of your Syneto appliances, Central implements the concept of “Location”. A location should be defined for each company office that hosts a Syneto appliance (headquarters, ROBO/Edge sites). Creating a location is also a prerequisite for the Syneto Central RAS service (Remote Access Service), as RAS is deployed per location.

Location management also gives a birds' eye view of the entire infrastructure at that particular site. Currently, that means being able to see whether any machines need software update or are nearing their services expiration dates.

By default, all newly activated machines are not assigned to any location.

Creating a location

To create a location click the [New location] button on the dashboard. Give your location a meaningful name (eg. the city) and supply its physical address. The address is needed for shipping any materials like spare parts. Finally, select all the machines which are installed at the location and click [Create Location].

After you finish creating all locations and assigning the machines to them, your dashboard should look something like this.

 To remove a machine from a location, click [Edit location] and click the [x] next to the machine ID.

To delete a location click [Edit location] and click the [Delete] button in the bottom of the form.
