When Changing the Department to Which Child Departments Belong

Department administrators can change the department to which the child departments belong, as long as they have administrative privileges for the parent departments.

Sample scenario: The department administrator can change the department to which the child department belongs

When the department administrator has the administrative privileges for the Sales Division and the HR Division, they can move the child department of the Sales Division to the HR Division. Figure: Showing that the department administrator can move child department, as long as they have administrative privileges for the parent departments

Sample scenario: The department administrator cannot change the department to which the child department belongs

When Moving Child Departments Back to the Original Parent Department

Department administrators can move child departments back to the original parent department only when they have the administrative privileges for the original parent department.

Sample scenario: The department administrator can move the child department back to the original parent department

When the department administrator has the administrative privileges for the parent department to which the child department used to belong, they can move the child department back to the original parent department.
For example, when the department administrator has the administrative privileges for the Sales Division and the HR Division, the child department, that was moved from the Sales Division to the HR Division, can be moved back to the Sales Division.

Sample scenario: The department administrator cannot move the child department back to the original parent department

When the department administrator does not have the administrative privileges for the parent department to which the child department used to belong, they cannot move the child department back to the original parent department. Ask your Kintone Users & System Administrators to perform the action.

For example, if the department administrator has the administrative privileges only for some departments under the Sales Division, the child department, that was moved from the Sales Division to the HR Division, cannot be moved back to the Sales Division.
