Modifying permission settings

LeaveBoard offers the possibility to edit the permission levels to limit access to sensitive data.

To change the permissions for your employees or managers, access the functionality available at Company > Permissions.

You can change the Calendar visibility level for employees at None / Team /Office / Company from this page.

On the same page, you can restrict the access to employee data Reports at the manager's level at None / Team / Office / Company.

Note: Restricting access to data could also be a productivity enhancer. If your business has 200+ staff members, then providing the calendars with all 200 calendars could be frustrating, irrelevant, and difficult to follow.
