Click the Repository Settings button, select "Manage Top Containers," use the Resource search field to search for the appropriate resource record, select one or more containers and click the "bulk operations" button to chose either the update bulk or single location assignment.

Hope that helps!

Hi all,

This is a nuts-and-bolts usage question. I’ve set up top containers for all possible containers that I will use. I’ve linked some containers to a collection but did not set the locations, thinking I could do that at the very end of the processing. I also set up locations for my repository. That was actually the first thing I did after attending a training session with Aspace folks.

Now that I’m ready to assign locations to these containers, I don’t see a way to do that. I don’t see any editing function that allows for this. What am I missing?

I played around and added another “dummy” container, and I see how it can be accomplished in that step, so does that mean that that is the ONLY time when a location can be assigned?
