Facility - Add

Adding a location from facilities and resources adds this location in your Location organizational unit (OU) hierarchy. This OU can then be used to assign items, create groups, configure availability, and more.

To add a facility, go to ILT > Facilities and Resources. Then, click the Add Facility link.
