How to give managers of managers visibility into Feedback, Reviews, Updates, or Growth Plans about their indirect reports
In Lattice, Admins always have full visibility into all tools used within the system. Depending on your organization's needs, admins can configure whether or not a manager of managers has additional top-down visibility in Lattice. If these settings are configured, managers of managers will have visibility into Feedback, Reviews, Updates, or Growth Plans about their indirect reports.
Note: Managers of managers can view the private and pubic goals of their indirect reports by default. At this time, you can't give managers of managers access to their indirect reports' 1:1s.
To configure these settings, please follow the steps below:
Step 1: Navigate to the Admin page found in the discovery navigation.
Step 2: Click on the "Permissions" section.
Step 3: Under the "Permissions" section, check any tools for which you'd like to apply extra visibility for managers of managers.
What does Top-Down Visibility Mean?
Let's say your team has a reporting structure that looked like this:
By default in the system, Taylor can see all reviews written about Susan. Tiffany can see the reviews written about Samantha and Sarah (her team).
By checking the box above for "Reviews," we can allow Alice to also read the reviews written about Samantha, Sarah, and Susan by navigating to their Profile pages.
Note: Managers of managers review permissions also allow visibility for any historical reviews uploaded for indirect reports in Lattice.
