|Working with Locations / Access Point Location Information|
You can add neighbors individually for each location and define search limits on a location-by-location basis.
When someone uses a Locate command for a group (“Locate the nearest Supervisor,” for example) the Vocera Voice Server searches the requester’s current location and all of its neighboring locations, but no other locations.
Choose neighbors that are adjacent to or otherwise physically near the location you are configuring. If the Locate voice command will be used to find the nearest emergency worker, for example, it is not advisable to define a very broad search area.
Before you can associate locations with neighbors, the neighbors must themselves be added as locations. In practice, this means that you cannot always add neighbors when you add a location.
If you could not add neighbors when you added a location, you will need to edit the location. To do this, select the location in the Add, Edit, and Delete Access Point Locations page and click Edit Location. In the Edit Location dialog box, click the Neighbors tab.
If you are in the process of adding a location, click the Neighbors tab in the Add Location dialog box.
To add neighbors to a location:
To select multiple locations, hold down the Ctrl key as you click each location.
To select a range of locations, click the first location in the range, and then hold down the Shift key as you click the last location in the range.
To quickly find a location on the list, begin entering the name in the Search field. As you type, the system finds the closest match.
