Venues can be set up for every customer location. You can have multiple venues for each customer to ensure you capture and analyze the correct data for each individual venue.

Within ManagementVenues you can add new venues and groups and edit existing venues. You can also update venue settings and add webhooks.

Access levels determine what can be seen by users. The four tiers of access permissions are: Reseller; Company; Group, and Venue. Click here for more information on user access levels.
