What is an Area and how do I create one on Workplace?

System admins and admins with custom permissions can create Areas for Frontline users of Workplace. Areas are collections of people who belong to common criteria, like location or cost center. Areas contain a mix of people and Area coordinators.
Area coordinators have permission to manage Workplace access for people within their Area. Employees who are Area coordinators must have an email address connected to their Workplace account.
