Data Privacy

In light of GDPR and to enhance security for your data, employees who have selected the option not to share their contact information with colleagues are only visible to their department managers on the people list. Additionally, when you create a new employee the default setting for contact details is that they will now only be visible to managers. You change this when you edit an employee and select the check box labelled “Contact info public,” so that their contact details will be visible to all employee in the departments they work in.
