What Is a Department Administrator?

Article Number:02010

A department administrator is a user who is granted permissions to manage users and departments in a certain department. In some companies with multiple offices or a large number of users, the Kintone Users & System Administrators are heavily burdened with managing users and departments. To address this, Kintone Users & System Administrators can assign department administrators and delegate the management of users and departments to the department administrators.
