Step 1 - Adding to Locations Table
The first data users should add is their Employees Location or into the locations table.
The Locations table is available via the Data Tables tab.
Simply add the locations into the locations table.
Careful consideration of the location structure in the early stages will prevent this table having to be reworked at a later stage; example which is a better, table 1 or table 2.

This is the only time you need to enter Location names, STARS will use the information entered here throughout the entire application. This allows for efficiency of operation and accuracy of data. All changes made to this table will be cascaded to all related records, allowing for one-time edit and updates.
