How to create a testing location

This article explains how to create a testing location.

About testing locations

Creating a testing location facilitates scheduling tests. Combined with the testing sessions feature, it allows the effective creation of tests for different user groups at different locations. 

Each location can be a physical location or a virtual room. It has a predefined time zone and assigned proctors who supervise the test.

If you select the location when scheduling a testing session, note that all settings of the testing location will be applied to the testing session, particularly:

  1. The proctors assigned to the location automatically become the proctors of that testing session.
  2. The time zone of the location automatically becomes the session time zone.
