Departments

You can recreate your company's internal structure in Yandex.Connect: create departments and sub-departments, add employees, and assign respective department managers.

If your company has an email domain linked to it, each department automatically gets its own email address (mailing list). You can use this address to send email to all users in the department, or to quickly add them all to a group chat. Only the company administrator can change the department structure.

Restriction. Only company administrators can add, edit, or remove departments.

Create a department

To create a department:

  1. Log in to Yandex.Connect as an administrator.

  2. Open the All employees page.

  3. At the bottom of the page, select Add → Create department.

  4. In the window for creating a department, enter the following settings:

    • Name of the department, from 2 to 40 characters.

    • Email address for the department (for example, “managers@example.com”). The department email address also acts as a mailing list, since any emails sent there are received by all employees in the department.

      The address must have at least 3 characters. It can consist of numbers, Latin letters, underscores, and hyphens (but it can't begin or end with a hyphen).

      Restriction. Mailing lists are only available for companies with an email domain.
  5. Click Create.
