From there, you'll see a few different sections: Standard Roles, Custom Roles, User Level Permissions, & Special Roles

Please note you can ONLY customize termination permissions in Managers (category within standard roles), Custom Roles, or User Level Permissions.

Example #1 


  1. Perhaps you want to give managers permission to view termination dates for their employees. Click on the manager category under Standard Roles.

  5. Select the Custom option. This will now allow you to select "Can View" for the termination date permission. Since we don't want them to see termination reason or details we'll leave those as "No Access"

  4. When selecting the "Custom" option the hiring manager will now be able to view some permissions while others they cannot. For example this hiring manager will now be able to see the termination date and reason but is blocked from viewing payroll and benefits information.

     ***Please note that you cannot customize to edit certain permissions. If you want the hiring manager to edit termination dates then GoCo will ask for the top level termination permission be set to "Can Edit" which will then set all permissions to "Can Edit".***

  5. When finished. Click Save and you're all set!
