Importing Locations With Territories

Importing locations with territories follows the same procedure as importing a standard locations file.  As with all location files the format must be a proper CSV file exported using the UTF-8 character set with no special or non-printable characters.

To load the territory data you must have first enabled the territories feature in the Premier Add On.  You will also need to have installed and activated with the Pro Add On or Power Add On for Store Locator Plus.

Your CSV file should add the following five columns to the file.    Make sure you add the field names to the top of each of these new columns as listed here:

  • territory_distance_unit
  • territory_distance_north
  • territory_distance_south
  • territory_distance_east
  • territory_distance_west

Within each column you will want to have the following values:

  • territory_distance_unit can be ‘miles’, ‘km’, or be blank.  If this is not set to ‘miles’ or ‘km’ it will assume the territory is not enabled for this location.
  • territory_distance_north , south, east, and west should be the distance north, south, east, or west from the location that is part of its territory.

The territory boundaries will automatically be calculated for each location during the import.
