This article reviews Locations within Workforce. Here, Users can create, edit, and archive Workforce Locations.

Locations in Workforce are utilized for various R365 Payroll purposes, such as determining tax forms for Employees, calculating taxes for payroll payments, and providing Workers' Compensation Job Code options on Employee Records. 

When setting up a Location within Workforce, the 'Name' must be exactly the same as the R365 Location associated with Accounting and Operations. This ensures that earnings exported from Smart Ops flow to the correct Pay Runs, and Payroll Journal Entries are attributed to the correct Location in Accounting.
