Manage Departments


Departments and teams for your organization are usually created when importing your list of employees. Teams are optional sub-departments. An employee can only be a member of one department and one team at a time.

  • Assign the Employees to each Department or Team - If you want to make changes to departments or teams and the assigned employees, then use the Employee Import with new/updated data in those fields. See Manage Employees.
  • Allocate spaces to Departments manually - You can manually allocate spaces to each department and team. See Allocate or Unallocate Departments.
