After repeated use, some buttons may become difficult to read so you need to replace the button. You should only delete a Location button after you have archived the data associated with that button. Following this procedure maintains your ability to run reports on the buttons that have been replaced.


Replacing a Location button involves these five steps:

  • renaming the old button
  • adding the new Location button
  • associating this new Location button to a tour
  • archiving the data
  • deleting all Location buttons that have been replaced prior to the archive date
