Welcome to the forum.
Nothing in RH itself, or any other tool I know of.
What you could do is created merged help (see my site) and then have your developers put permissions on the folders. Might not be as elegant as you want. You could put a warning on appropriate pages to indicate who should and should not read the pages and that might be a whole lot easier. Perhaps use different styles or backgrounds for different departments.
You could put a warning on all pages "You are not permitted to read this". Will guarantee every last page gets read! :-)
I was thinking if maybe we created another folder. I am not quite sure how RoboHelp is setup serverside, but if we created like a subfolder, then it would be somewhat secure unless someone knew we had it and knew the name of that folder. Our url is http://roboinfo The url I would think with a folder would be http://roboinfo/isdept or something along those lines. Would that work?
Yes, sorry, you don't need merged help.
You are going to need to understand how RH is setup serverside though if you are going to get anywhere with this requirement. Just generate an output to your local disk so that you can see it.
Calling the help requires that you open the start page as defined in the first field of the wizard. The user then gets the full help. You could put certain stuff in a folder and your developers could set up a system whereby they know the user and block that folder. However the user will get an ugly Page Not Found.
Perhaps use conditional tags and create three or four outputs and then different users would be given the relevant start page for their version.
