Departments are profiles for groups of Users that are grouped by function, geographical location, or some other means that use different FedEx account numbers or cost centers.
- Administrators assign privileges and default options at the Department level and run shipping reports by Department.
- All Users must be assigned to a Department and automatically inherit the Department’s physical location, accounts, privileges, references, and defaults. If your company does not group Users by separate Departments, then all Users are assigned to the default Department, which is the first Department that was automatically created during the Shipping Administration registration process.
- Department settings can be customized at the User level for greater flexibility and control. Refer to User Settings for more information.
