Create Departments

Modified on Tue, 10 Jan 2023 at 06:17 PM

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 (Pro and Business plans).



Note: Every Teamly workspace will have a General department which is public and where all users are automatically added.


To move a department from Public to Private or Private to Public, right-click on the department in the left hand panel and select Edit where you can toggle the channel privacy as needed.


Departments with a lock icon are private.



Note: Click on a department's name to drag/drop and sort.


At the top right side of private departments use the Add User option to invite and manage users.




If you've reached your plan's department limit you will see the following message. Upgrade your account to add more departments.
