What are Departments?

Departments allow you to separate forms, submission data, and users inside a single GoCanvas account. 


Departments are especially helpful for larger organizations that need to manage lots of forms and users.

For example, if you have sales, service, and quality teams at your company, you can create a department for each inside GoCanvas. Departments allow you to structure your account just like your organization so everyone only has access to what they should have access to.

Each department can have their own forms that only those department members have access to. However, a form created by one department can also be shared with another department, while still being solely managed by the original department.
Submission Data
Each department can only access submission data from the forms within their own department.
Each user in your account can be in more than one department, with different roles in each department. 
Each department can have their own Groups to organize their users and assigned forms.
Reference Data
Each department can manage their own Reference Data for the forms that they build and manage.
Reference Images
Each department can manage their own Reference Images for the forms that they build and manage.

Departments allows organizations to give their teams the freedom to create the forms they need without other teams being able to edit them or view their submissions. Instead of everyone having access to everything, now each team can have a streamlined view of when logging into the GoCanvas portal.
