Teams or Departments, Which should I use?

In Abtrac both Employees, and Projects can be assigned to a specific Team or Department for reporting purposes. The main difference is…

  • A Team is assigned to an Office, and as such can be filtered in reports by office.
  • A Department is a stand-alone group that both employees and projects from multiple offices can belong to.

Both groups can be created and maintained from the Administration screens.
