In addition to general settings, department settings is the go to place for assigning managers and enabling swap and drop shift permissions for workers.

Must be assigned as a manager to the selected department.

Represented with a cog icon, department settings are found in the top right corner of the scheduler (next to the publish button).

General Settings
Name the department, select the location it belongs to and where appropriate, enable offsite addresses 

Department Managers
Assign managers to your department. Managers need to be trusted employees as they have permissions to perform all actions associated with managing the department such as editing shifts and approving time off requests.

Shift Swap & Drop
Enable the ability for your workers to swap and/or drop, unless they have been added to the 'exclusion' list, in which case they do not have permission to do either. Read the swap or drop article to learn more about these workflows.

Create and manage your company sections where appropriate. Sections are areas within your department.

Note: Use of sections require Premium Plan subscription or higher.
