Turning on the department filter
When the "Department filter initial setting" is on, the timeline that a member will see after sign-up will display posts of the member's department.
※Changing a member's department after their sign-up won't automatically change the department filter settings.
※ Each member can set their own the department filter, whether the "Department filter initial setting" is on or off.
Employee D belongs to the Department C.
When Employee D opens Unipos, his timeline displays the posts of the Department C.
Employee D was transferred to the Department E.
The admin has removed the Department C and has added the Department E.
However, when Employee D openes Unipos after this change has been made, he will still see the Department C's timeline.
As described above, the admins can only manage the ""initial"" setting.
Employee D can update his own department filter to the Department E in order to change his timeline display at the time of his next sign-in."
※Departments must be pre-registered to use the Department filter initial setting.
Please refer to: How do I register new department information?

Sales Department (old department name) → Sales A Department (edited department name)
