Update your Department Admins

Your Department Admins are responsible for managing a specific department or departments.

For example, a Department Admin will manage the marketing department's spaces for their employees regardless of their location. If there are marketing employees in both San Francisco and New York, then they will manage the spaces for the department. 

Prerequisite

If you want to assign someone the Department Admin, you’ll also need to ​allocate​ specific desks to the appropriate department. The Department Admin will then have control over these specific seats in their building and floor.
