Departments are used within WhosOff to represent the groups your staff belong to: e.g. Marketing or Operations. In smaller organisations the use of departments may be irrelevant but WhosOff requires at least one department.

You can add departments that are meaningful to you, and add departments to staff records accordingly.

You can set free/restricted days at department level, which maybe helpful if you have departments in other countries.

As WhosOff is an online system, departments could be used to manage remote offices or remote depots in different cities/regions giving an immediate and transparent view of your workforce.

You can also restrict department staffing levels see knowledge base article.../support/knowledgebase/How-do-I-set-minimum-department-staffing-levels
