Plans let your users map out what needs to be done at their location. 

For example:

Your company has been tasked with performing training in hundreds of schools and develop an action plan to improve teaching standards. Each School requires multiple visits to move through the course material. Each school requires a slightly different set of training and some training is completed before each visit.

Using Location Plans you can develop an individual action plan for each school. Any staff at the school can be given access to view or change the plan as needed.
