“[App Name] Location is a required field for import…” BACKTRACK Error Message


This article explains the BACKTRACK error message “[App Name] Location is a required field for import…” and details how to fix the underlying problem that caused it to appear.


This error message occurs during the ‘IMPORT’ operation in BACKTRACK.  It points to the inconsistency of the data being imported.  BACKTRACK requires each item to have a location. If an import does not specify the location in its structure or the location field is blank on the import file, BACKTRACK cannot import it without assigning a location so a location will be assigned by the system.


Fix the data so that every item being imported has location assignment.  Please make sure that the assigned locations exists within BACKTRACK.
