Create New Department Screen
When creating a new department several things are key. The department budget limit and the budget start date and budget end date. This are used in tracking a departments usage levels.
Department Table View
A dynamic title that shows which screen you are in
2/3. Limit, Count, Sum, Start Date and End Date
The table view shows you a department limit and the sum shows you how much a department has used as per the period specified (Start Date and End Date)
4. Edit Delete Actions
The Department screen does not allow you to restore deleted items. this is because departments rarely change in an organization. If you want to change the budget period of a department all you have to do is edit a department and specify the new periods.
Pagination is used to prevent users from scrolling too much when viewing departments. Remember you can indicate how many items you want users to view in your .env file
6. Department Graph
The department graph gives you a quick visual representation of how much departments are using.
