Departments are virtual “offices” where a group of people can discuss a specific topic. Teamly departments allow you to organize team communication. For example, you can create a Support, Sales, Engineering etc... department and add relevant users to them. Departments can be named in ways that make most sense to your organization. 

Select a project and click on the "+" icon next to "Departments."



Add the department name, description, select an icon color and set the visibility to public or private (STARTER and BUSINESS plans). Click on "Create."



Every Teamly workspace will have a General department which is public and includes all users.


To move a department from Public to Private or Private to Public (on a paid plan), right-click on the department in the left side panel and select "Edit."
