Site Types & Locations



The Site Type gives details about the type of property. Site Types are assigned to sites when you create a new Site and can be used as a filter when you search for Sites or Assets.

Site Types are used extensively in the asset management functionality of Oneserve. Please see the Site Type Attributes section for more details.
