There is no limit on the number of locations you can add to ZoomShift. Adding a new location is as easy clicking the New Location button. After clicking this button you will see a form like the one below. Once a location has been added you can edit that location by clicking on its respective row.

Assign Employees to Locations
Assigning your employees to locations will help to organize your schedule. You can learn more about this by checking out this help guide.
Using Locations for Mobile Time Clock
If you are using the mobile time clock you have the option to track your employee’s location when they punch in/out. You can then set a maximum distance from one of your locations. If an employee punched in/out outside of this range we will mark the timesheet for review. In order for this feature to work you need to enter an address for each of your locations. The address field is just a basic mailing address like: 123 Main St. Milwaukee WI 53203.
After saving a location with an address you will notice that the Location Detected column will get marked with a green check mark. This means that ZoomShift was able to detect the GPS coordinates of this address. This location can now be used when punching in from the mobile time clock.
By default, locations are displayed in the order that they are added to ZoomShift. If you want to change this order you can do so by dragging your locations to the order you want. You can do this by clicking on the reorder icon next to a location’s name and then dragging it to the order you want.
