Visibility of Employee Title in Company and Succession Org Charts are controlled by the "read" permission over the employee data field "Title" in Role-Based Permissions (RBP).


First, make sure that users have a title defined, for them to show in Org Charts. This information can be verified in Admin Center > Manage Users > Select Target User > "Title" field has information > if not, populate a value for users in this field.

To enable users to see the Employee Title in Company Org Chart and Succession Org Chart, it is necessary to grant "read" permission for the "Title" field in Role-Based Permissions (RBP) for the target population:

  1. Go To Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles;
  2. Select the desired permissions role;
  3. Click Permission;
  4. Under section "Employee Data", enable "view" permission to Title field:


  1. Click Done;
  2. At the bottom of the page, in "Grant this role to..." define the target population for this permission role;
  3. Click "Edit Granting" for the target group;
  4. Restrict or expand the target population for this permission role, for users to be able to se the Employee Title in the Org Charts;
    NOTE: This will affect all permissions granted in this permission role, controlled by the target population (sign "†" next the permission).
  5. For users to be able to see their own Title, the option "Include access to Granted User (Self)" must be enabled;
  6. Save Changes.
