When you add a team manager, you can give them 'read-only' access.

📎NOTE: This isn't available if you have Sage HR's new permissions enabled. If you have, you can create a role that replicates the permissions of a 'read-only' manager.

Read-only managers can see employee data, but they can't see outstanding time off requests. This is useful if you have higher-level managers who need access to their sub-team data, but don't need to be involved in leave management.

Read-only team managers can edit employee details like any other team manager.

If you don't yet have the new permissions, follow the steps below.

View steps

  1. Edit your team via Company, then the Teams tab.

  2. Select the employee you want to add as team manager.

  3. Select Read-only manager.

  4. Click Add manager, then click Save.

The employee now appears as a re-adonly manager.
