Territory Admin allows you to create custom territories that are collections of countries useful for your organisation (e.g Europe).By default, there are a number of Territories that are already configured in the system. This is because they are specifically listed in the Onix standard.
This page will take you through the process of Creating, Editing and Deleting Custom Territory
To start working with Custom Territories, you need to navigate to the General menu section and then select Territory Admin.
You will see a list of any custom territories that you have created.
Creating a territory:
To create a custom territory, first click on Create New.
The following window will open and you should fill in the relevant fields:
Copy Existing? If you want to start from a territory that has previously been setup, click on Select and this will bring up a list of existing territories. Clicking on this will automatically populate the countries, and then you can amend the list, adding or deleting as necessary.
Name: Provide a short concise name for the territory.
Show as Localisation: If you are using localisations for generation of descriptive texts, then you should check this box if you want this territory to appear.
Flag: If you want to use a flag to indicate the territory, then you can select one from this list.
If the flag that you wish to add to this is not shown on the list, then please submit a request to the helpdesk using this link: New Flag Request.
Code: It is advisable to provide a short code for the territory.
Description: An area for you to provide a fuller description.
Country: Choose the relevant countries by adding them in the drop-down menu.
Click Update when you are finished.
Please note that the information you've just added here will then become available in the drop-down menu under Territories in the Rights tab of an individual title record in Title Manager.
