Permissions and Visibility for a Department Head
What is a Department Head Admin?
As an admin, you may want to give people in your company permissions to view or manage a subset of your company. This may be just one team, department, office, etc. Typically, the Department Head position is responsible for aligning business objectives with employees and management in their designated business unit(s).

The Department Head Admin has full visibility and Admin permissions into all employees that are members of their business unit(s). This will include themselves if they are part of that custom field. This can be customized for specific tools if you only want someone to have access to a portion of Lattice (e.g., if you only want someone to have access to reviews). This is outlined below in setup.
