Creating a testing location helps you in scheduling tests based on locations and geographical reports.
You can select time zones for the location, and assign proctors to it.
During creating a testing session, you can choose that location,
and all its settings will be automatically applied to the testing session:
The proctors assigned to the location automatically become the proctors of that testing session.
The time zone automatically becomes the session time zone,
helping you not have to manually calculate the test time for each location in relation to your time zone.
This feature is optional, and you are not required to use it or specify it in testing sessions.
