Yes, you can schedule separate locations or departments in one account or in separate accounts linked for billing purposes only. The cost is the same.

I am looking for more information on how the departments work... how do i link an employee to a department? Can I set up the managers of each department so they can only change the schedule of their department?

Hi Robby,
Departments are used to filter various Positions in Zip Schedules, so you wouldn't be able to link a specific Employee to a Department but if say all Cashiers and Greeters are under your "Front of House" Department, you can filter for "Front of House" on the Schedule Pad or Weekly Schedule Report and see only those Positions.
You also can't assign a specific Manager to a Department for the same reason, but you can solve this by giving their Position title a name that makes sense with that department. For example: schedule Robby the Manager as a "FOH Manager" Position title on the Schedule Pad and assign the "FOH Manager" Position to the "Front of House" Department you created earlier along with Cashier and Greeter (for example). When you filter by "Front of House" you should now only see Employees belonging to those Positions, including the Manager.
You can set these preferences by navigating to the Top-right Gear Icon > App Settings > Positions/Departments.
Hope this helps!
