The Departments table stores information about any departments internal or external to the company. Each record typically stores the department name and a main contact, if applicable. Departments may be used to define distinct processes, contract types, services on a per department level, as needed.
Use Case for Departments
Department records may be created by members of the Admin and Business Admin groups. As a background table, other tables link to Departments, including the Employees subtable.
Ownership of Departments
Department records are owned by the user whose Login matches the Creator Login field in each Department record. More simply, a Department record is owned by the user who created it.
