Divisions are used to create organizational separation, usually within a department. Divisions can belong to departments or can be at the top of your group hierarchy.
To Create A New Division:
Creating Divisions within your organization is optional. If you decide to break down your Departments into different Divisions it is best to create your divisions at the beginning, right after creating your departments.
Grades and/or Ages must be set in here in order to utilize automated class promotions if you plan to promote children / students by departments!
From the menu:
Groups > Divisions > “Add New”
Creating a New Division
Name: Create a name for your Division, for example if you want to separate your Youth Department further into Junior High and High School.
Short Description: This is a short optional description of this division.
Full Description: Any information entered here will be displayed on the group detail page when viewing this group in the personal hub or on the app.
Parent: If this division falls under another group in your organization's hierarchy, choose that group here. Otherwise, choose “Entire Organization”
When using Kiosk, choose how this division is displayed on the kiosk screens.
Short Name: Allows you to set a shortened name for use in the kiosk menus.
Kiosk Display: Choose whether the division's name, the organization's name or other text is displayed on the kiosk screens when operating within this division.
Personal Hub / Self Manage
Enable or disable the desired options with regard to how this division functions in the personal hub.
The classifications that you define in People > People Settings > Classifications can be used to classify any individuals connection to your organization as well as each connection between an individual and a group.
Choose the classification which you use in this division to define the Primary and/or Secondary Leader (such as Leader / Assistant Leader or Teacher / Helper, or any other classification you've created). Then, choose the default classification which describes an ordinary member of this division (such as member, student, child, etc.).
If you enable age/grade restrictions for this group, then you'll be able to limit this division only to individuals who are within a certain age / grade range. This is primarily for automated assignment and automated promotions. You are still able to manually assign anyone to any group.
Then click Save.
Once you've created a division, there are a number of settings that you can set at the division level. To access division settings,
From the menu:
Groups > Departments > Gear Button () >
You can choose manage group files, upload new file or hide or disable group for this specific division.
You can upload and share files with leaders or members of any group. From the Divisions page, you can click on the gear button and choose Manage Group Files or Upload New File.
Files can be shared with all members of the group, limited only to leaders of the group, or limited only to admin users. Admin users can access the files by clicking on Manage Group Files. All other non-admin users can access files which they've been granted access to via the Personal Hub.
