Departments

Setting up the Departments module

Overview

The Departments module enables you to organize the intranet around your company departments. It helps you create department pages, share department updates, news, and announcements that are relevant to a department.

Network admins can change the system default label and other domain-wide settings of the Department module.‌

Admin Portal > Modules > Departments
  1. Department Label: Enter a custom label for the Departments module.
