Body of the Article

After registering all employees in the system, the manager may then wish to create a hierarchy in 2020 Manager that reflects the management structure of their business. In doing so, all users of the system will have visibility on not only their projects, but also on those that report to them in the management structure. 
The user at the top of the hierarchy, typically the store owner or manager, will have full oversight of the projects of all users in the business, and so on until the lower level is able to see only their projects.
