How Do I Create a Department within Vacation Tracker?

Once you sign up with Vacation Tracker all of the active users will be set to one Department by default, the Default Department. However, if like us you have multiple departments, you can create additional departments to manage your requests and to assign different approvers.

Let’s create your first department!

Go to Vacation Tracker Dashboard -

On the left-hand side, under Settings, click on Departments

Once on that page, click on Create New Department

A new page will open where you can enter all the necessary information

Name - enter the name of the department
Users - you can select which users will belong to the department.
Approvers - you can select which User(s) and/or Admin(s) will be the Approver(s) for this department.
Make This Department Default - you can opt to have this as the default department, where all new users will be sent after being imported

When you are done, click on Create Department button and you are all set

After creating your department, you may want to set custom notifications for that department. You can do so using the steps outlined in this guide: Guide: Notifications Within Vacation Tracker
