Although most details of a facility are editable, a few restrictions apply. Regardless of your permissions, you cannot change a facility's domain. Additionally, only specifically authorized users can change a facility's health system.

Tip: The link icon iconcommonfacilitylink.png in the left pane indicates this facility exists in the Common Facility system.

To successfully change information regarding a facility, follow the steps for editing a facility's general information and/or details.
