Departments

Departments in MangoApps are the collection of your intranet data and members into one centralized location. As most organizations use departments to separate job function and location, MangoApps can also separate those pieces of information so that you can find what you’re looking for quickly and easily.
This 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.
