Genesys Cloud includes three independent concepts that people often call locations:

  • A location is a specific, physical place with an address. An admin configures locations. Locations appear in the Location section of your profile.

  • A geolocation is a geographic area that Genesys Cloud determines by IP address. An admin can enable or disable geolocation for an organization. Your geolocation appears near your name and photo on your profile page, on your contact card, at the top of a chat window, and in Genesys Cloud search results for your organization.

  • A site is a container for phone and BYOC Premises Edge configuration information and must have a designated location. While a site can have the same name as a location, the two are independent concepts. A telephony admin configures sites.
