Please refer to your Web Developer for assistance on how this information is used in your personal website




Zones and Areas

Zones/Areas may be configured here for the location. This information drives the enforcement software for Checkers to monitor the area with ease. 



Areas 

Areas are used by the OmniPark enforcement Software, they are not visible to parkers and do not affect rates. 

  • Use the actions dropdown icon to edit an area

  • Tap Add Area to create a new area



Zones

Zones are for parking rules/rates but parkers and checkers cannot see the zone names

  • Use the actions icon to edit the zone.

  • Tap Add Zone to create a new zone



Stalls are optional and only need to be used for lots with stall-specific rates or logic. 

  • Stalls are a combination of Zones and Areas as well as a stall range.
  • Example ranges: 1-10, 12, 16-32 

  • Both a Zone and an Area must be defined. 
  • To restrict CallToPark payments To the specified stalls, please use Validate Stall in the  CallToPark Tab.
  • Stall ranges may not overlap. 
  • Tap Add Stall to create a new stall range.
