[SOLVED] What's the use case for "Unknown Location"?

I would like to understand the expectations on the use of the Unknown location within a default OpenMRS installation:

  1. Is it meant to be left as a fall back? So therefore an implementor does not touch it and creates their own hierarchy?

  2. Is it a starting point - renamed to the name of a facility where the installation is done?

I would say think of Unknown Location as Unknown Provider, it’s the fall back location if the ‘true’ location wasn’t captured

What Wyclif says.

You should definitely not rename this location to be your primary one, since code may refer to this location by UUID, presuming it is the unknown one.

Thanks @wyclif & @darius will preserve it as unknown …
