Copying a 25Live Location

Security Note

To copy a location, your 25Live user must have appropriate permissions set in Group Administration: 

  • Admin: 10.0 Create, Edit and Copy Locations

You will also need either of the following sets of privileges:

  • Edit, Delete, Copy Object Security rights for the location that you are copying
    Default Security - Locations = Edit or higher
  • OR the ability to override location security requirements: Admin: 21.0 Override Location Security = Yes

Accessed via the More Options display when Viewing Location Details, 25Live provides users with sufficient permission the ability to use the current location they are viewing as a base to create a new location using the Copy Location option.
