The manager is an employee to whom other employees report to. The #manager tag represents the hierarchy that exists within your company depending on the employees who have staff members in their charge. It is very important that you assign the role of manager to all the people of the company that perform this function in real life so that Factorial can work properly.
How do I assign a manager to an employee?
If you are an admin, enter to the employees section, choose the employee who you want to report to a superior and enter this information into his profile. Right next to the hiring date you will see the "Report to" field. Choose the person you want this employee to report to and that's it.
Employees> Employee Profile> Report to> Employee Manager
When assigning a manager to an employee, we will ask if you if you want the manager also to accept or deny requests for absences, holidays and sick leaves. In this link you can learn more about the Time off Manager
Factorial will create your organization chart based on what you fill out in the "Reports to" field. We will draw a line between the employee and his manager and as soon as you have indicated the manager of all the employees you will see an organization chart similar to this:
Employees> Organizational Chart
What does a manager sees?
Managers will have access to the profile and to the time off section of the employee or employees who they manage. Managers will never be able to access personal data of other employees, nor consult the payroll or others.
