Departments are one aspect of HR. You can give a manager (login) access to employees of a department. A department can be linked to employees who work for different companies under the one debtor.
If, for instance, there is a Support department and you link this to employee 1 under Company A and to employee 2 under Company B (both companies under the same debtor), they then belong to the same department. In this case a manager who has access to this department also has access to both employees.
Below is a description of how to create a department and how you can then link this department to an employee.
