Using the Departments feature allows you to create reports that are summarized by team. If you have an accounting integration, map (export) your payroll transactions by team.
To add a team member to a department after it's been created, follow the steps below. Keep in mind, employees can only be assigned to one department.
You can also assign a team member to a specific team by clicking edit under the Employment Details section in their profile page.
At this time, employees can only be assigned to one department. If an hourly employee works in different roles or departments, you can assign multiple pay rates or job titles as needed, and their paystub will list each job and its associated earnings.
You can edit the department settings at any time in your account.
You can remove the departments feature at any time in your account.
