By default, your tenant will be configured with a single area named “COMMON”. In this default state, the areas feature is considered “off” and every object in the tenant (groups, access points, users, schedules, etc.) will automatically be added to the COMMON area.

Once another area is added to the system, the areas feature will be turned on and everything created in the system will need to be designated to an area.

Creating an Area

  1. Navigate to the Settings page from the left navigation bar.
  2. Select the Areas tab.
  3. Hover over the plus sign to reveal the menu. You may need to scroll to the right to see this menu.
  4. Click Create Area.
  5. Enter the name of the area and select the correct time zone. Then click the Next button.

For the below example, we’ve created three new areas in addition to COMMONLos Angeles Office, New York Office, and Security Center.

Assign Administrators to an Area

Administrators must be assigned to the area or areas of which they need to View or Manage the users, groups, schedules, rules, dashboards, etc.

  1. Click the next to the area you want to manage. Then click Manage Area Access.
  2. Choose the appropriate level of access next to the user you want to assign.
