As an Admin, you can give granular permissions to a member of your organization so that they can edit and have visibility into specific Lattice tools. For example, this may be helpful if you want to give someone Admin access for a specific subset of people. 

Setting these permissions can be done by following these steps below:

Step 1: Click on the "Admin" panel found on the top navigation bar

Step 2: Click "Permissions" found on the lefthand side

Step 3: Toggle to "Custom roles" found next to "Platform roles"
As a reminder, if you are looking to give someone Admin permissions across the entire Lattice platform, you would add their name under this "platform roles" tab. This is also where you can set the default visibility for managers of managers in regards to Updates, Reviews, and Feedback.

Step 4: Click "Create custom role"

Creating a Custom Role

Step 1: Add a "Role name"
For example, if you would like to give Admin permissions to a business partner in New York, you could name this role "HRBP - New York." 

Step 2: Enter the name(s) of the member(s) you would like to apply this custom role to

Step 3: From the dropdown, choose which employee subset you would like this custom role to be responsible for by using the filter

Pick a field and define which values you want to include. For example, a specific department or a specific location, such as “New York.”

Quick tip: To see which employees fall under this custom field, click the "View employee list" button (as shown below).
