AccountManager Locations

Location documents are used when there is more than one physical location for a particular company.  Locations are always linked to a parent account profile.  They can be shared by all the users of an AccountManager database, and are governed by the same policies as Account profiles.  Your AccountManager Administrator may have set certain restrictions, such as allowing field salespeople to only see their own customers.

A Location document only contains basic information such as that location’s phone/fax numbers, address information and assigned salespeople.  Other more detailed information, such as account Industry, Category, etc. is inherited from the parent account profile, so is not repeated or editable on a Location document.

Creating Location

1. Open the AccountManager database, and go to any “Accounts” view.  Double-click to open the account profile you want to create a location for.

2. Click the “New” button and choose “Location”.  A Location document will open up pre-populated with the “Company”, “Account Manager”, “Account Type” and “Territory” of the parent account profile. 

3. Enter a “Location” name that will help differentiate this location from any others for this account.  Many times, this may be as simple as a city name.

4. Fill in additional phone, fax and address information of the new location.

5. Click the “Account Manager” hyperlink to select the appropriate account manager(s) for this location.  You will only be able to choose from the account managers assigned to parent account.  (Account managers for Locations, must also be assigned to the parent account for security and access purposes)
