Sometimes, you want to keep your HQ/Lab locations hidden from the app but still be able to test earning/redeeming against these test locations. This can also be useful when locations are closed but you still want guests to be able to earn on their receipts (when the receipt age expiration is a few days/weeks)
To hide a lab; HQ Location or other testing only spaces, the following
1. Make sure that the "hide" flag is enabled in store properties. Navigate to:
Dashboard >> Cockpit >> Locations
2. Once the hide attribute has been enabled on the location cockpit section, this same attribute will now be visible in "Mobile Apps" section of each location in dashboard.
3. On checking the flag, that particular location will not be visible in the app, but will be visible in the Punchh dashboard and will remain a good test bed for check-in and earnings.
