This guide has been created for system administrators.
The working locations report enables companies to analyse user movements within the business, identify ideal dates for collaboration, and monitor hybrid activity.
Companies who are utilising working locations may see an increase in collaborative working, and quite productive time and can use the working locations reports to support examples of where this has worked well within the business, encouraging other staff to follow suit.
Other benefits include being able to forecast the future need for hot desks, office supplies, cleaners and much more based on a location’s anticipated population.

Ott & Grant are reviewing the working locations for their sales staff for the next month in hopes to organise an online training session.
To review and anticipate staff movements they run a CSV report to see who is due out on which days.
Using the report, they identify a couple of dates that suit the wider group. 13 and 14 of April have only one member of staff due to be at a site, so here they know they can ask this member of staff if they can rearrange their schedule to accommodate this training or record it so it is available for them to review another time.
