What can an employee see at Factorial?

If you are the admin of a company account on Factorial and you have already invited the employees to join, find below a list of the information that they will be able to see:

  1. Their employee account at Factorial 
  2. Your Profile and Personal Data (only their data, not that from another employee)
  3. Their Time-off section
  4. Their documents and shared company files
  5. Their clock-in, in case the company has enabled it
  6. Their task section
  7. The calendar that lists all the other people on the team and the people who are out of the office (employees will not be able to see the type of absence for which the employee is out of the office if indicated by the administrator), to learn how to edit this information you can read the article on customized leave types.
  8. A list of the company employees with very reduced information (they will only be able to see very basic information about the employees, like e-mail, manager, teams and the customized fields that are shared with the rest of the employees)

They will never be able to see personal data of other employees, -Unless they are granted the permissions to do so-

💡 Remember that employees will only see what you want them to see and will  be able to access private data from other people on the team if an administrator grants them the permission to do so.

👉 Don't worry, all the data of the employees is safe in Factorial and will stay confidential.
