To enable this functionality, two steps must be followed or you can refer to Implementation Guide.

  1. Go to Admin Center > Manage Recruiting Team Settings and select Allow managers above Hiring Manager to have access;


  2. Add GM+ to field permissions in the Job Requisition template and/or Application template.
    • You can configure this role via Manage Templates. Please refer to the See Also section for more details.

Once both steps have been followed, upline managers will have visibility to the Hiring Manager's access (read or write depending on permissions granted in step 2).


  • The field level permissions for upline managers are set by using the GM+ designator in the Requisition XML and Application XML. If this permission is not specified then upline manager users will receive V permissions on the records (unless they happen to be associated to the requisition in another operator's field).
