Organizational Unit Administration



If you have upgraded your TimeIPS System from a version older than 1.10, the system named "Departments" has been renamed to "Organizational Units". There is a new "Departments" system. This change was made after extensive customer feedback concerning the nomenclature of these systems and their intended use.
Note: Organizational Units are used to categorize employees. If you want to track time spent on one task versus another, you should use Departments or Jobs.
