Storage sites and jobs can have sub locations.

Storage site sub locations are generally used to specify exactly where items are stored, for example, shelf 200 or bin abc. Companies with large warehouses sometimes use coordinates like "aisle 10, row D". Sub locations can be useful if you store the same item in several places or often move items within your storage site(s). But there's a down side: sub locations have to be entered when you assign items and can become cumbersome. If you store each item in one location that doesn't change often, CONOTES in the Items screen requires less data entry and is easier to use.

Job sub locations can be used to specify where items are at a large job site or to which crew they're assigned.

Every storage site and job can have as many sub locations as you like. Each sub location can, however, refer to just one job or storage site.

Sub locations can be imported.
