15Five creates a hierarchy based on reviewer/reporter relationships and allows a default visibility based on this hierarchy. Since we are frequently asked who can see what, the default visibility for a few roles is listed below.
Top Tier Reviewers
By default, the reviewers at the top of the hierarchy will be able to view their direct reports' 15Fives, and anyone who reports to their direct reports, and anyone who reports to those direct reports, and so on. This includes multiple levels of reviewer/reporter relationships as far as the reporting line goes. These top tier reviewers are typically C Levels, VPs, or HR Managers. Only 15Fives are visible through this default view; not 1-on-1s.

Some reviewers are in the middle of a reporting chain, meaning they have a reviewer above them and direct reports below them. By default, these reviewers will be able to see their direct reports' 15Fives and anyone who reports to their direct reports, as far down as that line goes.
15Five admins do not have visibility into everyone's 15Fives by default. Admin visibility follows the hierarchy privileges listed above; aka if an admin does not act as a reviewer, they will not be able to see anyone's 15Fives without requesting to follow. If the admin is a reviewer, their visibility will follow the above logic. For more information on roles and responsibilities, click here.
15Five has a 'follow' feature that allows any person to request to follow any other teammate's 15Fives. For more information on that feature, see this article.
