What Is A Parent Location And How To Create One

Set up Sub-Categories for your Labor Costs

Written by Andrea Montenegro
Referred to as Locations, you can use these categories for your Departments, Projects, Clients and other classifications that may apply to your business or industry.

Creating Parent Locations organizes your data further by establishing sub-categories whose budget funnels up to a parent category and vice versa.

Name the Parent Location after the project and use the subcategories (Locations) to capture the different components of the project.

Some examples of how to use Parent Locations are as follows:

Construction Industry

Parent Location Name: Homer Estate

Location One: Drywall

Location Two: Cabinets

Interior Design Industry

Parent Location Name: Homer Residence

Location One: Guesthouse

Location Two: Family Room
