Visibility and Hierarchy Options
We would like a fully transparent structure. We would like more privacy. We would like somewhere in between. Listed below are visibility settings for each of those scenarios.
We built 15Five with flexibility in mind, and there are a variety of different ways you can set up your organization to use 15Five. Here are a few examples that you can use and an additional walkthrough to set these examples up.

- Traditional Management Hierarchy - By default we have 15Five set up for a traditional management model. As an administrator, you can add reporters and reviewers, and be able to drill down into the organization. Drill down is defined as the ability to see everyone's 15Fives who are below you in the reporting hierarchy. This default structure allows a user to see 15Fives of anyone below them on the reporting chain. For more details on this default setting, see this page.
- Total Organizational Transparency - If you would like to create a fully transparent organization where all people can read everyone's reports, make comments, and like comments, keep reading. You can set up your organization by creating a group with Group drill-down and Group viewing enabled. Keep in mind that all reports will become viewable to everyone on this setting. All members of your team would need to be members of the group.
- Executive Level Transparency - If you want to set up a structure within 15Five that only allows managers to have full transparency, you can do this by grouping only your managers in a dedicated Leadership Group. Then, you will enable Group viewing + Group drill-down. This will grant managers in the Leadership Group the ability to see one another's reports, and be able to drilldown to see the direct reports of those managers.
