Department Tools

Online spaces for every department

Departments in MangoApps allow you to leverage your company's existing classification of employees based on their functions in a clean, organized, and automated manner. This module allows you to structure the intranet around these functions and facilitates the creation of department pages. You can share department-specific updates, news, and announcements that are relevant to each department. Departments are designed to align with the traditional organizational structure, providing distinct segments and dedicated spaces for departments such as IT, HR, Finance, and more.
