It is possible to prevent certain types of users in Sage HR from being able to view other employees profiles. If you want to control who can or can't view employee profiles, we'll run you through this below.

These settings may also explain if you're wondering why someone can't access someone else's profile.


Employee users

Employees can't access another employee's profile. The most they can see is an Employee Info Card when they click on another employee in the company directory.

However even this option can be disabled in Employee permissions if you don't want employees to see anything at all when they click on another employee.


Direct manager

Direct managers have subordinates based on the org chart structure, and can access all employees one level below them.

If you don't want a direct manger to be able to access employees' profiles, this can be controlled in Team manager permissions.

Just make sure that next Allow access to employee profiles is not selected under Direct managers.


Team manager

A team manager is someone who is assigned as a manager to one or multiple teams in Sage HR. Direct managers have subordinates based on the org chart structure, and can access all employees in their team(s).

If you don't want a team manger to be able to access employees' profiles, this can be controlled in Team manager permissions.

Just make sure that next Allow access to employee profiles is not selected under Team managers.


Administrators

An administrator by default can do and see everything in Sage HR. If you don't want an administrator to view an employee's profile, you must take away their administrator access in Admin permissions.

Keep in mind that if they may still have access to employee profiles depending on if they are team or direct managers with access enabled, as explained above.
