That would be great to have a search option while assigning a department  to user in Gen2. There are thousands of departments in my firm so it is really annoying to scroll down through all of the departments while looking for a new department.

Hi Dominika,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

While I check internally with my team about the feasibility of adding this feature, I can suggest you a small work around. This may not work when you have bulk user add, but can surely work while adding a single user. 

While on the user list page, first search for the department name. Click on the department name and click Add. This will take you to the add user page with department already populated with the one you selected. The advantage here is that you can find the department name in advance and don't have to scroll through the drop down on the user add page.

Thanks
Aashnee

Hi Aashnee,

I am not sure if you understood me correctly. I was referring to assigning a department (changing the department) on the user's profile.

Thanks and best regards,

Dominika

In gen3 we introduced new infrastructure to allow searching on all selection fields in the application.  We are in the process of rolling out an update for the user profile page in gen3 which brings this search functionality to the department field.


Unfortunately we do not have this search infrastructure in gen2.  Because of this there are no plans to bring the same functionality to gen2.
