Your clinic can have multiple locations. One is always the primary default location. Each location has to be created and configured accordingly.

📌 Note: Every clinic has access to a Virtual location for virtual visits. This location cannot be removed or edited.

Each location has its own schedule and you can easily navigate between various locations. See Filtering the schedule. When you add provider working hours, you must select the specific location for that provider.

If your clinic is using eBooking, when patients request appointment, you can allow them to choose between configured locations.

Locations are also used to restrict access to patient charts based on location if you are using role-based access control.
