View an individual's profile

A person's profile in 15Five (not to be confused with their account settings page) allows you to quickly learn about an individual, review their recent activity, and see their teammates, group memberships, and followers. Direct managers and a person themselves can also user profiles to varying extents. You can view the profile of anyone in your company's 15Five instance, regardless of your role, but he extent of what information you can view and edit depends on your role and your relationship to that person. This article walks through how to view a person's 15Five profile and what visibility permissions apply for viewing.

  2. Click on Company directory in the top, right-hand corner of the page.
  3. Find the person whose profile you would like to view or edit by searching for their name or filtering by direct manager or group. Once you find them, click on their name.
  4. You will then be directed to the 'About' tab of the person's profile.

Visibility and permissions

Reporters can see other people's About, Career vision (with the exception of aspirational info), and Activity tabs. The extent of the Activity tab depends on whether or not the reporter has access to view the other person's Check-ins. Reporters can only edit their own profile.

In addition to reporter permissions, direct managers can see aspirational Career vision information, as well as the Wins & challenges tabs for their direct reports. Direct managers can add Wins & challenges to their direct reports' profiles.

In addition to reporter permissions, account administrators can access a direct link to a person's account settings from their profile page.
