Location Groups

The Location Groups table contains one or more user-defined locations from the Locations table. Location groups are used to simplify the definition of custom Paths and Path Selection Modes: instead of creating one entry for each individual location, you create a location group and define a single entry for it.

Note the difference between location groups and groups. Location groups contain physical points on the map and have flat structure (i.e. a location group cannot contain other location groups). Groups aggregate logical entities of your supply chain (customers, sites, suppliers and other groups) and can have a tree-like structure (i.e. a group can contain other groups). 

Note: When you create a group, a system location group is also created for it, which contains locations of all facilities that are present in a group. Such location group is not displayed in the Location Groups table and cannot be edited but you can select it as a source or destination when defining a Path.
