Departments reflect the departments within your service who will be using the software. For instance, if you are a music only service you may have only a ‘Music’ department, or you may also have a ‘Music Theory’ department. If you offer more than once Service, for example Dance, Theatre Art, Creative Art, etc… these can all have their own individual departments created in the system.
These are usually only required to be set up when you first use Ensemble.
How to add a Department:
Go to Settings 🡪 Departments (under Activity Section) and add a new record:

Departments only need to be named, and as such can be named ‘Music’, or ‘Drama’ or ‘Dance’ as per your own departments that will be using the software.
Then save the record where it will appear in the list on the left-hand side of the screen:
