Departments are a way to group administrative staff for organizational, payroll, and billing purposes. For example, if you have employees in TrackTik who belong to a payroll department, an HR department, or a scheduling department, you can organize these employees into departments in TrackTik.
Departments are also necessary for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Bring Your Own Device allows you to assign guards to a department and generate a single device license for that department. Each guard assigned to that department uses the device license and can clock into their shifts at the sites or zones to which they are assigned.
To access a list of departments, hover over the Employees tile and select the Department option:
