    4. This widget will not show at all in case a manager has more than 30 direct reports as per the handbook.

    5. This widget 'Salary Vs. Team' as stated in the guide Displaying Compensation Widgets | SAP Help Portal: displays a comparison of the employee's salary with their immediate colleagues. It is intended as information for the manager, who usually has permission to view the salaries of his direct reportee team, but not for the individual employees or his own peers. Therefore, make sure this tool access is provided to the manager only roles so that this widget access applies only to their direct reportees as target and not to the managers themselves.
