Departments make it easy to organize your team into groups. You can sort and filter the Schedule by department or limit a team member's view to one or more departments.

Select a department for a team member

Managing departments and sub-departments

An Admin or Account Owner can see an overview of all the departments from the Departments tab within the Team settings. See how many people are in a particular department, add sub-departments, or delete departments you no longer need.

📝Note: If you're a Manager looking to add or edit sub-departments for your own department, reach out to an Admin or Account Owner for your team to request any updates.

Manage departments, add-sub-departments, or delete departments

Sub-departments allow greater flexibility to add a team within a department in Float. For example, you may have frontend, backend, and mobile teams within an Engineering department.

To add a sub-department, click the plus icon for the department and add the sub-department name:

Add the sub-department name

💡Here's a tip: Once you've added a new sub-department, you can assign people in bulk to the new sub-department using the bulk actions menu on the Manage page.

Assigning a manager to a department or sub-department

A People Manager for a department or sub-department could schedule and approve time off for that group of team members. An Admin or Account Owner can assign a manager to a department or sub-department on the Manage page:

  1. Click the manager's name on the Manage page to open up their profile.

  2. Select Access and assign People Manager access rights.

  3. Select Manages to assign departments or sub-departments to the manager.

To limit a person's view to a specific department or sub-department, select Can view -Departments from the Access tab within their profile. They will only see the people, projects, and activities related to their viewable departments or sub-departments.
