Editing the properties of departments

You can rename a department, change its owner and monitoring policy, close and reopen the department, and more.

You must have the Configure Department Properties permission in a department to edit its properties. By default, users with the role of User Admin have this permission.

To edit the properties of a department

  1. Click the Departments tab in the Compliance Accelerator client.

  2. In the Departments pane at the left, click the department that you want to edit.

    If Compliance Accelerator lists a lot of departments, you can filter the list with the fields at the top of the pane. As well as filtering the departments by name, you can choose whether to list any exception employees, folders, and reviewers that are associated with them.

  3. Click the Properties tab.

  4. Edit the department as necessary.

    If you have finished with a department and want to prevent department administrators and reviewers from accessing it, set its status to Closed.


    You can nominate a new owner, but the original owner still retains all the administrative permissions. If you do not want the original owner to retain these permissions, use the Role Assignment facility to deassign them.

  5. Click Save.
