As your company grows, or monitoring needs change, you may find that you no longer need a Zone or Location displayed on your desktop. To ensure complete audit trail records, Locations can be deleted only if they have never been linked to a channel to collect data. Any Locations that cannot be deleted can still be prevented from appearing on the viewLinc desktop, with the deactivate function.

  • Deactivate: The Location is hidden from view (Zones and Locations tree) and can be reactivated at a later time.
  • Delete: The Zone or Location can no longer be used. This option is a good way to remove the visual clutter associated with deactivated Zones or Locations.
You cannot delete the top-level Zone or a Zone with Locations that have been used to collect data. Zone deletion is only available when all child Locations are deleted or moved to another Zone.
