how to assign the appropriate role to each user


Deciding which role to give each user

kippy ensures that only the right user can view and change information appropriate for their role. 

Each users has a role and a team.  

The role determines what they can do. For example, only a Manager can appraise. The team determines who they can appraise i.e. only the users of their team. 

The user's permissions cascade down the organisational hierarchy. So for example, a Manager in the Level 2 Technology team can appraise staff in the Level 3 Software Engineering and Level 3 Testing teams underneath. However, that Manager cannot appraise someone in a different Level 2 team, or any other Level 3.

The table gives you a quick guide to determine which role to give each user.
