How do I add a new department or update the name of an existing department in my Staff Directory?

Last Updated: Dec 03, 2018 04:53PM EST

You may wish to add a department to a specific building or change the name of an existing department. This is tied to how staff members show in the Staff Directory when a "Staff List" component is used. The most common scenarios that call for this change are a school name change or a new department category is needed for staff members. Follow the steps below to make these changes.

  1. From the Admin Home select the building that your department exists in (or will exist in)
  2. Click on the "Departments" button
  3. If you are adding a new department click on the "Add Department" button (click "Edit" next to the department, if you are updating an existing department)
  4. Make the necessary addition/update and click on the green "Save" button
Once your new department is created, you can assign staff members to the department from "Master Staff." If you are simply editing the name of an existing department, you will not need to update staff members - they will automatically reflect the new department name if they were already assigned to it.
