Permissions: Owner

Product tier: Available for Greenhouse Welcome and Greenhouse Onboarding subscription tiers

Default Access is a permission tier in Greenhouse Onboarding that contains the two roles automatically assigned to users: Employee Access and Manager Access. Unlike custom or administrative roles, which must be manually assigned to specific users in your organization, roles in the Default Access tier are automatically assigned to users based on their direct report status to other employees in your organization.

Note: A user will be assigned Manager access if they are assigned as a Manager on another user's profile. 

Please follow the links below to learn more about how to configure the permissions for these roles. 

Note: Roles and permissions are additive in Greenhouse Onboarding (for example, a user who is assigned Manager Access still retains Employee Access permissions). 

To configure permissions for either role in the Default Access tier, click Settings from your navigation bar and select Permissions from the left-hand panel.


Navigate to the Default Access panel from the Permissions page and select either Employee Access or Manager Additional Access. The Default Access panel provides a general description of how each role can be configured.
