Granting a Manager minimal permissions - Controllers

This guide for Controllers shows you how to create a manager with minimal permissions who is able to see everyone in the Calendar.

Navigate to the following functions –

  1. Config > Access rights > Managers.

    Use this area to make the individual a Manager.

  2. Config > Access rights > Managers' rights.

    Untick all options except ‘Holiday info.’ This needs to be selected. Set the pay option (at far right hand side) to 'See no pay/benefits into at all'.

  3. Config > Access rights > Managers’ document rights.

    Make sure that all options are unticked.

  4. Config > System > Calendar.

    In the Managers' access to calendar section, ensure that the ‘Everyone’ option is selected for your new manager.

Your new manager should now have the Management dashboard. They will have access to a number of functions but with very limited functionality.

The Calendar can be accessed from Management > Holidays. You will be able to toggle in training related absences, but if you want to have the ability to toggle sickness, you will need to tick the ‘Absence info’ field in Config > Access rights > Managers' rights.

We suggest setting it up with a dummy user to better understand how these settings work and what the manager can and can’t see.
