To create privacy in individual employee profiles, Structural Admins are able to create profile field permissions so only specific team members can see the profile data.

  1. To adjust the permissions of a profile field, first select the Profile Fields tab in the Admin Panel.

  • You can search for a profile field or scroll through the profile fields. There you can select Details to see the current permissions for that profile field.

  • Admins can also select the Edit option and change the visibility of each field.

Here are the sections Admins can modify or edit:
