Departments, towns and areas

By default in JEA, there is a relationship between departments, towns and areas. It means that area is a part of a town and town is part of a department.

For some reasons, if you don't need this behaviour, it can be deactivated in JEA options > General > Relationship between departments, towns, areas.

Import features
