When creating or editing access levels, there are 2 tabs that pertain to an employee profile’s access level settings – Self Employee Page Access and Employee Page Access.
The difference with these two is that Self Employee Page Access refers to the access and restrictions applied when viewing the user’s own profile. On the other hand, Employee Page Access refers to the access and restrictions set when viewing other employee profiles based on the assigned Employee Viewing. The purpose of separating these two, aside from security, is for the access level settings to be more flexible and customizable.
For instance, Manager A is assigned with Manager Dashboard and Direct Reports as Employee Viewing. Under Self Employee Page Access, he has access to view his salary details, whereas he is restricted from viewing his subordinates’ salaries.
Now you know the difference between Self Employee Page Access and Employee Page Access. You can now modify the access level settings for profiles to what your policy allows. If you have questions or suggestions, get in touch with us at email@example.com.
