Places are most useful if employees will be working from a site for weeks at a time – for example, if they’re working at a construction site, so exceptions can be automatically flagged.
If you don't need exceptions to be flagged, you don't need to set up places. In this scenario, you could still look at the map views of punches to check where employees were when they created punches.
