Restrict organizational chart access

In LINE WORKS, all members can access the organizational chart, check the members of other organizations, and view a specific member’s profile. However, you can also restrict members from viewing other organizations and their members in the organizational chart.

You can restrict the search based on the following units: member, employment type, and organization.

Member Restriction settings apply only to the added members.

If a member has the restriction setting applied not only in the member unit but also in the employment type and organization, the restriction setting in the member unit is prioritized.

Employment type Restrictions apply to all members of this type of employment.
Organization Restriction settings apply to all members of this organization.

If the multiple restriction settings apply, priorities are in the order of Member, Employment type, and Organization.
