Organization units

What is an organization unit and when is it relevant?

If your organization consists of autonomous business units (perhaps also based in different locations), where each unit has its unique properties such as structure, processes, and others, it may be preferable for you to convert your MobiClocks environment to an enterprise structure.

When you convert to an enterprise structure, your MobiClocks environment is divided into distinct organization units (org units). Since job sites are location-based entities, each job site can belong to a single org unit, whereas companies can be assigned to multiple org units and are thus cross-org unit. Therefore, the employees of a company can also be cross-org unit and can be assigned to job sites outside of their org unit.

If your MobiClocks environment is converted to an enterprise structure, you have an org unit selector to filter the data in your environment by org units. The selection list also has Global option to view data for all org units at once. The following screenshot shows the org unit selection list in the MobiClocks Web App.

Additionally, employees, companies, job sites, and other relevant entities have an Organization units field that indicates the org unit they are part of. The following screenshot highlights the Organization units field in the list of companies.

Lastly, when creating back office users, you specify the org units they have access to. Users can have access to all the org units (the Global option) or only the selected org units. The following screenshot shows the org unit selection option when creating a user in the Web App.
