Defining a user's role and accessibilities is critical for running a smooth workplace and freeing up the admin to focus on other essential responsibilities.

HR coordinators, C&B, Recruiters, and others can be assigned to roles with varying levels of Employee Data and Feature Access.

Depending on the configuration of your access role, you may or may not have access to this feature. Please check with your Admin for access control.

1. Default Roles

a. Admin

The workplace's creator is automatically assigned the default role of Admin.

This role grants you access to all data, modules, and functionalities within the workplace. You cannot adjust the accessibility of this role but can add other users as co-admins.

b. Employee

All active employees are assigned the role of Employee by default, with the exception of those who have resigned.

In this role, employees can self-manage their information. The level of access can be chosen, but adding or removing members is done automatically and cannot be manually updated.

2. Understand Employee Data & Feature Access

a. Employee Data

Employee Data is the information stored in employee profiles, which includes Personal Info, Job Info, Contract details, Documents, Payrolls, Payslips, and more.

You can limit the role's access to employee profiles using the following options:

  • All employees including resigned ones

  • All employees (excluding resigned employees)

  • Direct & indirect reports

  • Direct reports

  • Employee Groups: the person who has this access can manage only the profiles of the added groups

  • Personal data only: this option only applies to the Employee role


  1. HR Manager needs access to all employee profiles to be able to oversee recruiting process, on/offboarding, employee documents, performance results, etc.

  2. Heads of Department need access to Direct & indirect reports to manage their department's performance results, pay information, employee details, etc.

You can also customize the levels of access to employee data:

  • No Access

  • View Only

  • View and Edit

b. Feature Access

Feature Access (or Features) specifies the actions a role is allowed to perform in certain modules or features.


  1. HR Manager manages the Human Resource Department, which includes overseeing the management of employee information, on/offboarding, time tracking, payroll, and performance appraisal, as well as multiple functioning reports. Therefore, HR Managers need access to:

    • Employee data: of all employees, including resigned ones

    • Features: almost all modules. Except for subscription details, access control, and company settings, since HR Manager does not manage these aspects.

  2. Recruiters need to manage hiring, posting jobs, and create new profiles, which would require access to:

    • Employee data: specific groups and cannot access data of work schedule, offboarding details, payroll, payslips, documents

    • Features: Recruitment, Manage Employees - Hiring (i.e., create new employee profile), Report - Recruitment Pipeline
