Can I limit which managers can see a department? Can I apply an effective date when assigning departments to users?

No, neither of these things is possible if you’re using Replicon’s default departments. However, we do offer something called groups, and groups do offer both of those features.

If you need this advanced functionality for groups, you can name one of the group types to “Departments”, create groups that represent each of your departments under that type, and assign users to those groups.

Note that groups are only available to enterprise customers.
