What is the Department Management Feature?

The Department Management Feature allows you to create, view, edit, and track information about the different departments within your company. You can define the hierarchical structure of your departments, assign them to specific companies, and manage their status.

How to Use the Department Management Feature

Tracking Department Information

The Department Management Feature also allows you to track changes made to each department, including who made the change and when it was made. This helps ensure accountability and transparency within your organization.
