Region Considerations

The “Modify Region” screen enables the user to edit the name and description of the selected Region.

A Region is a geographical area that contains one or more Locations. These are normally provinces or countries.  CampControl uses Regions to group Locations for reporting and assignment of user permissions.


Suppose a company has 3 camps, where 2 are in British Columbia, Canada and the remaining one in Arizona, USA. They'd create 2 regions:
  1. British Columbia, Canada
  2. Arizona, USA
 They'd then create the 3 camps as Locations (see Manage Locations)

Considerations when creating a Region:
  • As a general rule, enter the province/state and country as the Region name.
  • If the company only plans to explore in one province/state, the country can be omitted.
  • If the company has many camps in one province/state, a greater level of break down may be necessary, e.g. Northern Alberta, Southern Alberta.

  You need the following permissions (see Manage Permissions):
