Understanding Company Structure
Defining your company's structure involves setting up the following entities:
- Organizations and organization skills. Organizations represent the broad divisions of your company. They can represent internal or external groups of users—for example, internal divisions or partners. Organizations are used to control access to data.
- Divisions. Divisions belong to organizations but do not affect visibility. Divisions are used to group positions, record addresses, and maintain default currencies.
- Positions and position skills. Positions represent specific job slots. Positions determine which record users can access.
- Responsibilities. Responsibilities control the screens and views a user can access.
