I cannot see share data with peers option | CRM FAQs

I cannot see "Share data with peers" option in my Edit Role settings?

It is likely that you have chosen the Hierarchy Preference as Reporting instead of Role.

When "Reporting Hierarchy" is enabled, you will not be able to see "Share data with peers" option while editing the Role Settings. This is because, once you have chosen a reporting manager for a subordinate, the concept of sharing data between peers within the same role is rendered unnecessary. 

To enable Share data with peers option, you must disable reporting hierarchy from Company Settings and revert to Role Hierarchy
In reporting hierarchy the visibility of data is linear, that is only the superior or reporting manager can view the reportee's or junior's data.
