A location is defined as a physical location where you carry out your tasks and responsibilities. Locations are normally described as workplaces like head office, warehouse, school premises, manufacturing plants, and non-workplaces.
Your WhosOnLocation account can support unlimited locations, each with its own unique country, date format, time zone, visitor policies, and other settings to meet the requirements of that location.

- Select a group, then click Close.
- Click Manage Options to add, remove, or rename a group. Click Finish Editing, then Close.
