Users and Departments

In order for employees to use WOX, they need to have user accounts in WOX. Each user account in WOX corresponds to a user or employee. Each account contains information including employee name, email address, mobile phone number(optional), password, job title(optional), job number(optional), gender(optional), and more. Employee uses the account and its credential to access WOX. There are many ways to create user accounts in WOX:

Set up [Directory Synchronization]

If you are using SCIM providers such as Microsoft Azure AD, Google Workspace, Onelogin, Okta etc, you can set up automatic directory synchronization. The benefit of this solution is not only the information is always up to date, but also more secure because no passwords are needed and employees can use Single Sign-On to login WOX.

Departments

Department information can also be created or synchronized from directory. In WOX, departments are hierarchical. Each department can have one and only one parent department, but have many children departments.
