"Together" security access management
The Together portal structure is built to ensure the right management per site. With this configuration, you can easily define who can administrate, contribute & read per site. As an HR manager, you will have access to all HR hub features in one click.
The Together intranet use the standard SharePoint permissions groups:
Normally, you'll have one or more site owners, a relatively small number of members who create and contribute to the content on the site, and a large number of visitors who are the people you're sharing information with.
You can give people permissions to the site by adding individual users, security groups, or Microsoft 365 groups to one of the three SharePoint groups. (Nested security groups can cause performance issues and are not recommended.)
The "visitors" group is a good place to use security groups. In many organizations, this is the easiest way to add large numbers of users to a site.

Manage the navigation
Managing the navigation for the Together portal requires the Site Owner"s role in the Home of the Intranet site.
To edit the navigation, click on the gear and click edit navigation.
In the navigation panel, you can manage all your navigation nodes and organize the navigation in the way you want. The navigation supports 2 levels of nodes and you can add any url links (it can be external links to your company apps, or other content in your Microsoft 365 environment).
To add a page to the navigation, you need to click the "add a link" button and create e new node. Save your changes and the new node/page will be added to the navigation on the left side. You will be then able to drag and drop it wherever you want it to appear in the navigation. As you do this, click "save".
Manage the departments
When the Together intranet is deployed, it only contains few departments that probably do not reflect your company organization. You can easily rename them in the navigation or add new departments.
Important: To add new departments, you need to be a Site Owner in the Home of the Intranet site and you need to be located on the home page of our Together Portal.
After the confirm button, you will need to wait few minutes before the new department will be available.
Important: do not forget to copy the URL of your department to add it to your global navigation after the creation. if you miss it, the url of the site will be available in the site content section
