1-on-1 visibility

By default, only the two participants in a 1-on-1 can see the 1-on-1 agenda. Managers and account admins do not have any visibility into 1-on-1s they're not participants in. Furthermore, the "Private notes" section of a person's 1-on-1 agenda is private to them alone.

The exception to this rule is that if your company has global viewers, those individuals have full visibility into all 1-on-1 agendas. Please note that the global viewer role is typically granted to HR leaders, and only granted via special request to 15Five's Support Team by your company's account owner.
