Managing locations in the Registration Tool for Calendars (Duration: 5:23) 


This article will walk you through how to add a Location for the Registration Tool. There are three different types: Location, Other Location and Virtual Locations. Locations are physical locations that are frequently used. Other Location is recommended for one time use and Virtual Locations are for virtual events with a meeting link.
