Not Able to See Other Departments

In TimeForge, you won’t be able to see another department if you are not associated with that department. To be able to see a department, the position to which you are assigned must be associated with that department OR you must be assigned to that department (you can manage a department without working in the department).

For example, if you are a “Craft Manager” (position) in “Crafts” (department), and all “Craft Managers” are assigned to the “Crafts” department, then you will be unable to see what’s going on in the “Produce” department unless “Craft Managers” are assigned to “Crafts” and “Produce”. If you don’t want to assign all of the employees associated with that position to a department, you can add them individually. So, if you only want a specific “Craft Manager” to work in “Produce”, you can assign just one employee to a department without assigning all the other “Craft Managers” to “Produce”.  

Here is how you can reassign department positions.

Go to the “Departments” page.

Go to the "Departments" page.
  • Log in
  • Hover over the “Set Up” tab
  • Click “Departments”

We are one year into it now, well past being enamored with the newness. We are married to TimeForge. It's as essential to us now as any of our management tools today, and we very happy about that.- Steve @ Hermosa Cyclery
