Zyncro Features: Departments section
Estimated reading time: 4 minutes
What is a Zyncro department?
It’s one of the organizational blocks making up the structure of each organization in Zyncro that can be defined in the Organization Configuration section of the Control Panel.
Users with department creation permissions can create departments (this permission is given to them by the administrator in the Control Panel, in the User Management section) and only the person that created the department (main owner) or the owners appointed by the main owner can add users to that department.
Only corporate users from the same organization can become part of those departments or companies.
Other users of the organization can follow a department or company to stay up to date with the latest news in that department or company.
What appears in the “Departments” section?
The departments created in a company are always shown in the Departments section (tab between Files and Groups and Tasks, if there is one).
Each department has a name and is accompanied by an image associated with the activity that department carries out, a description and button to follow it.
Existing departments can be sorted or organized according to:
- Only departments whose name starts with a specific letter
- All departments in ascending (A-Z) or descending (Z-A) order
Members of a department
The sections (tabs) shown in each department are:
Messages: This section appears by default when accessing a department. It shows you all communication happening within the department: messages written by the main owner (they appear by department), uploaded files or notifications of new members that have joined.
Files: It shows you all files that have been uploaded to the department. This action can only be done by members of that department.
Members: These are the people with their photos, statuses and email addresses that make up the department. This page enables you to follow these users or stop following them if you are already following them.
Under the Permissions column, you’ll see who is the main owner within the department. The main owner can add or remove people from the group, change the information shown for the department they “belong to”.
Followers: These are the people that see the department’s actions (messages, actions on files, people added or removed) on their Home section.
Their department is shown in brackets in a blue color (link).
More about us: This section is designed for adding information, links of interest, references to the department. This information can be entered in HTML format.
Zyncro lets you group users by groups and by departments.
