User Dictionaries are used to group users together for customisation purposes. Dictionaries do not necessarily relate to the department the user is in, or the role they have in your business, but is more about what they should see and the experience they should have when using the CRM.
All customisations (Fields, Layouts, Text etc.) are configured on a per-dictionary basis.
