You and your team may operate in several locations or you might have assets stationed in different areas. Use your locations to organize and optimize your team’s workflow. If you have multiple locations, you can quickly add this data into UpKeep using the import feature.

There are two levels of location hierarchy: the Parent Location and Sub-Location. Your Sub-Locations would be more specific areas within the Parent Location.


  • Can use CSV, XLS, XLSX, TSV or XML Format

    • You can also manually enter items to the table

  • If you need to Update the name of a Location you need to use the Update Name Field to change the name

  • Parent Locations must be entered before Sub Locations

  • You can import Parent and Sub at the same time, but the Parent needs to be higher on the sheet.

  • Example:


Parent Location
