Departments can be useful permissions tools for organizing account access by groups of people. With its settings, you can enforce permission to data and functionality by groups and locations, templates, and portals.
Once a user has been assigned to a department, the department-level permissions will be enforced for that user and will limit their access to pages, data, and functionality.
Users with administrative-level access can access and maintain department permissions for a PDCflow account.
In this documentation, we will explore the steps to set up departments under the following sections:
- Accessing Department Management
- Adding a New Department
- Editing a Department
- Deleting a Department
