Assigning Departments, Employment Type, and Roles to Multiple Users

Within MakeShift, Company Admins have the ability to assign departments, employment types and roles to multiple users. Location Admins and Department Admins will not have this ability.

To assign multiple users with the same department, employment type or role, click Users in the top navigation bar.
