Departments are used to group users together within the uAttend system. You can set up departments within your account and assign users to each department. There is no limit to the number of departments you can create within uAttend. You can also customize each department by using the settings found on the Departments page.


 

Adding Departments


To add a department, follow these steps:


1. Click the Departments tab on the main menu.
