Sub-locations are transmitted to IMMS from the LMS and are used in IMMS to manage classification of the various items in item groupings at the individual branches.

Since the LMS defines the sub-locations, it is not possible to edit/create them in IMMS. However, it is possible to indicate in IMMS whether or not an individual sub-location is active in IMMS. If a sub-location is inactive, it is hidden in IMMS (e.g. in lists of options in the web client). This is typically used for sub-locations that have been transmitted from the LMS but are not actually in use.
