Encouraging Working Location coverage across organizations

What’s changing

Starting today, admins have access to a new tool that aims to drive Working Location usage across their organizations. This setting adds a customizable banner to users’ Calendar either encouraging or requiring them to set up their working location. 

By increasing the usage of working location, admins and colleagues will have better context for location planning, meeting room management, preparing meetings for virtual and in-room attendees, and more.
