How to define the departments in your company

Departments are used in most companies to group specialists. With Mirro, you can setup as many departments as necessary, and you will have the possibility to even generate your organizational chart. 

Define and customize departments in your company.

In Mirro you have two possibilities to define the departments: manually or using the import option. To define the departments manually you will need to access the Admin area module > Departments section > Add new department option. When adding a new department you will have the possibility to fill-in the following details:
- The name of the department;
- The short code of the department;
- The coordinator which will represent the head of the department;
- The parent department. By defining the parent department the organizational chart will be created automatically.

Once the details were filled-in all you need to do is to save the information and the department will be added in the list. Afterwards, you will have the possibility to either edit the department details or to delete it from the list. 

To access the organizational chart, you will need to go to the Organization module > Departments section: 

The second option is offering you the possibility to import the details about the internal positions and departments. When using the import, the positions and departments will be created automatically but in the same time these details will be assigned to each user in part. Please refer to the How to import users positions and departments article, the section 
Management lines. 
If you decide to use the import option you need to make sure that the positions and departments are already set-up manually in Mirro. When filling-in the excel file you will need to make sure to map the existing values from the application to the values which you are adding the excel file. If you miss this step, the values from the Excel file will be added as new entries exactly as there were written. 

However, when using the import option, the organizational chart will not be created automatically. You will need to access the Departments section and assign the parent department for each department in part.
