Adding Additional Units To Your Facility

Note:  If your site is not converting data to Express from another QuikStor product, this action must first be performed in the Data Entry program that comes with QuikStor Express.  For more information, please see the Data Entry section of this manual.

To get to this section, go to Settings -> Unit Setup.  You will see a screen similar to this: unitsetup

You will use this window to add new units, work with unit types, or delete existing vacant units.

Below are the functions you can access within this window, with a brief description of each.

Unit Types

This window allows you to create a unit type.  Later you will use these types to create specific units.

To work with the unit types section click on the type button.unittype


In order to define specific units in your facility, you must first define the unit types.  For example, you might have 20 units that are all 10X10 with roll-up doors on the first floor.

Rather than re-enter all of this information each time you create a new unit, you simply create a unit type with those parameters.  Each time you create a unit with those attributes, you will define it as this type.

Note:  You must fill in all of the required information or you will not be able to click the OK button. The only optional fields are security deposit info and the checkbox at the bottom of the window. If options like “Type” or “Door” do not apply, simply choose “other” from the pull-down menu.

When you have filled in all of the information, click the OK button.

Add Unit

This function allows you to add individual units to your site, using the unit types you have created.

To add new units click on the addunit button.

Unit Number

This will be the first item that you need enter in when you are adding units.  Every time you add a new unit to your site, you must enter an alphanumeric unit “number” in the specified field.  You will not be able to enter a number/letter that corresponds to a unit that has already been created.  When you have entered a number/letter in the specified field click the OK button.

Unit Type

This window allows you to choose which type of unit you are adding to your site.  Select the type from the list you created using the Unit Types screen and click on the Select button.

You will then see a window like this:  sure

Click on the Yes button to continue with this change, or No to cancel this operation.

Once you have finished adding units click on the Save all changes and exit button.
