Visibility groups

Note: This action is only available to users with account settings access. Read this article to learn more about visibility groups.

When managing a team, you may want to restrict access to specific information in your account. Pipedrive offers visibility groups to allow you to categorize your users and define which items they can see.

To begin configuring your default visibility, go to Settings > Manage Users > Visibility groups.

You will be given the option to select the default visibility for items added to the system. You can change this at any given time.

Note: The flexibility you have with your visibility groups depends on your company's plan. Essential and Advanced users are limited to one default visibility group for all users. Professional plan users have access to three groups and Enterprise plan users have unlimited groups.

Detail view

Note: This action is only available to admin users and regular users with the correct permissions enabled.

The detail view is the view of a single deal, person, or organization and contains all information related to that item. You can also set the visibility of an item at the individual level in the detail view.

Click on the visibility icon at the top of the page and select the visibility for that specific item.

Similar to the information above, the visible-to options are the same visibility options specific to your Pipedrive plan.

Note: The visibility of a single item will override the visibility group setting.

List view

Note: This action is only available to admin users and regular users with the correct permissions enabled.

Depending on the number of items you need to edit, there are two ways to change the visibility of items in the list view.

If you want to change the visibility of a single item in the list view, make sure that your "Visible to" column is visible. Next, hover over the item to see a pencil icon for editing and click on it to edit its visibility setting.

If you wish to change the visibility of several items, you can use the bulk edit option. You can either select specific items or all the items displayed on your list. Then, you can change their visibility by selecting a different option.

Learn more about the bulk-editing feature in this article.


Visibility issues

If you are a regular user, you may encounter issues when trying to open certain people, organizations, or deals.

When this happens, the following banner will appear:

Once the banner appears, we suggest that you reach out to your admin so they can either grant you visibility or change your status to a follower. Learn more about it in this article.
