Employee Departments

Jump to: navigation, search

Employee departments are a way of grouping employees to limit or allow a certain amount of access to eoStar. This can be for security reasons, as well as permission reasons for employees.

An example of an employee department is the sales department which would have access to Orders but not necessarily be able to Write-off inventory.

How To Create A New Employee Department

  1. Go to Records>Employee>Departments.
  2. Click New on top bar.
  3. Specify record number for the department either by creating one or selecting it off the list.
  4. Add information - department name.
  5. Click Save on top bar when finished.

Permission is also adjusted on an individual level for each employee in the Employee Records permissions panel. See Permissions Panel - Employee and Employee Departments(REDIR).
