In performance permissions you can see your list of direct managers, and control the depth of their access according to your org chart.

By default, each direct manager can only manage their direct subordinates. You can amend this and allow certain managers greater access to who they can manage in performance by changing their access depth.

📎NOTE: Only users with administrator access can follow these steps.

  1. Click your name in the top right, then click Settings.

  2. On the settings menu click Performance, then click Permissions.

  3. Under Access depth next to the relevant manager, click on the drop down arrow and select the depth number.

  4. Click Save.

EXAMPLE: Jack is an Assistant Manager, Annie is Head Housekeeper and Bill is a Housekeeper.

Below you can see where Jack, Annie and Bill are in the Org Chart.

Annie is a direct subordinate of Jack, and Bill and the other housekeepers are direct subordinates of Annie. An access depth of 1 for Annie allows her to manage performance for the housekeepers. An access depth of 1 for Jack would only allow him to manage Annie and his other direct subordinates.

For Jack to have access to manage performance for the housekeepers too, we must change his access depth to 2.
