What is a section?

You can create sections in order to separate different areas or departments within a unit. Like districts, sections are an optional level in the structure. Sections can be created on each unit and can be used as a way to divide the a into smaller parts for scheduling or filtering options. Sections always belong to the unit under which they are created and can't be moved to other units.

Benefits of using sections

If you have many employees working in the same location but in different parts of the organization, the section option can be used as a tool to create smaller groups in Quinyx sections/departments. This makes it easier for a manager to easily choose a group of employees using the filter option in different views for section on employees.
