Getting Technical: The Importance of Locations in KaiNexus

Posted by Ryan Rippey

Feb 8, 2018 12:44:33 PM

I was on an enablement call with a customer the other day and they asked me, “If there is one aspect of KaiNexus my organization must understand to be as successful as possible in the system, what would that be?” I pondered for a brief moment before the light bulb went off and I responded, “Location.”

For a KaiNexus seasoned vet, when I mention the word Location you should immediately be thinking about the Network.

The Network in KaiNexus is your organization’s unique structure or hierarchy. A Network Location is a group of users or a work unit. Whenever you are planning to add a new user to KaiNexus you must first determine where this user “lives” in the system. Every user in KaiNexus must be associated with at least one Network Location. A user’s Network Location, in combination with their Roles, determines what they see, what they can do, and what sort of notifications they will receive. To take it a step further, each location has a Level Type which designates what kind of work unit it is such as a department, team, or work group.

Have I lost you yet?
