Managing Purchasing Departments

Follow

When syncing Certify Expense departments to Certify Purchasing, 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.

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

Step 1: On your Certify Purchasing homepage, click the Configuration tab.

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.
