4. In this section you can: 

Add new locations: 

Click on Add Location, type in the name of the new location and click the Save button.


Add new sublocations: 

Click on + Sublocation and select the format - Shelf or Freezer Box (freezer box sublocations will be an interactive grid) - for the sublocation. Type in the name and click the Save button.

    Can you move an Item in Inventory from one lab location to another lab location without editing/export/importing an Excel file?

    Hi Anthony,

    Thanks for reaching out with your question! If you have two separate Quartzy Labs, it is only possible to transfer items between them using Excel.

    If you have additional feedback about why this transfer feature would be helpful, please let us know via Thanks!
