Managing Certify AP Departments

Follow

When syncing Certify Expense departments to Certify AP, all departments become parent departments at the company-level. To configure the hierarchy of the customer's parent and child departments, you can change the position of departments in the hierarchy.

If you try to change the position of a department in the hierarchy tree and there is an SAF approval already configured, the system will not allow you to move the department without deleting the SAF first, moving the department and rebuilding the SAF.

This article shows you, a Certify AP Admin, how departments are synced from Certify Expense and how to move these departments in Certify AP.

Step 1: On your Certify AP homepage, click the gear icon.

Step 2: All departments begin as parent departments under the company-level. To change a department to a child department, click the name from the hierarchy.

Please Note: The company name and departments are automatically in the correct positions in the hierarchy. You only need to change the position of the child departments.
