In the curriculum platform, Coursedog allow you to organize courses, programs and proposals by department.
To access your departments, click on Settings → Departments and you will be taken to the departments dashboard.
Add a Department
To add a department, select ‘+ Add Department’ and fill out the Add Department modal.
When you are finished, click ‘Add’ and your new department will appear in the dashboard.
Departments have some extended functionality which you can see by selecting an individual department from the main dashboard.
From the general settings, you can edit the basic fields of your department as well as add Department Chairs.
All proposals go through an approval workflow. If you have proposals that are assigned to specific departments, you can use dynamic steps to automatically generate the workflow step based on that department.
For this to work, you need to configure the workflow settings within each department. From inside the department, select ‘Workflow Step’ and you will be able to edit the workflow settings for this department. This behaves exactly like a standard workflow step.
