If you have added a new location you have noticed a field named 'External Key'.
In the articles below, we recommend making this a unique identifier unique to the location. That is because we use this external key to make edits in bulk for you when requested. This unique identifier is often times the name or number of the store for continuity. For example, if you're adding Store 500 you can make the External Key 500. Then when exporting the locations you will see 500 under External ID.
Here are some use cases for this external key:
