Allow each user to be assigned to more than one department
Allow the edit/add user form to use a multi-select list for Department. This would allow users to inherit permissions for files for more than their single department.
I am surprised this is not at the top of the list. It's a given that organizations have groups that contain users, but this package doesn't consider that users can be members of multiple groups. Without the ability to make users members of multiple groups, many organizations that this product could fit, are excluded as potential client's because it won't fitl. That is a showstopper for me. I think that's a shame because this package is one of the better DMS' out there.
The feature is very useful & required
This is very useful feature. With this feature the system would be more flexible and convenient.

Would also want to put in place the ability to filter-out any departments the user is not a member of.
