Good to know before you start
As default, Node is 100% transparent. But there is an option to set detailed permissions on who can see what, down to the detail of a comment on a key result.
Group visibility settings is an admin-only feature and you need to create groups manually or have a group integration enabled with your role registry, eg. Active Directory.
You can only access the Group Management view on desktop, it is not available from the mobile phone or other devices.
Accessing Group Management
You navigate to Group Management by tapping on the arrow in the upper right corner and tap Company Settings.
In Company Settings, click on Visibility Settings in the menu on top:
Adding Group Visibility
Groups show up in your left column, you need to tap on the group you wish to edit in order to make changes to that group.
The visibility is handled through the hierarchical relationship that each role (each Node) has. So in the role hierarchy we thereby define the following relationship to a role:
By checking in the check box next to "Roles are visible" you make that relation of roles visible, and open up additional visibility for that category:
Outside of adding visibility to roles that a role has hierarchical relationships to, you might want to add visibility between roles that does not have a direct hierarchical
relation. In order to do this you can add one or multiple groups to a group:
Adding a group to a group stipulates that all members in the current group also has the visibility granted in the other group.
The visibility is set so that any added visibility over-writes more restrictive visibility.
Roles are visible: The roles in this group sees the role or roles in this relationship category.
Objectives are visible: See role + the objective of the role or roles.
Objective progress is visible: See objective + the objective's progress.
Key Results are visible: See objective + the Key Results of the Objective
Key Result's messages are visible: See Key Result + the comments on the key result.
Key Result's progress is visible: See Key Result + the progress of the key result.
