Why can't I see the Share data with Peers option | CRM FAQs

Why can't I see the Share data with Peers option?

There are two instances when you will not be able to see the Share Data with Peers option:
  1. If there is only one user in your CRM account.
  2. If you have selected Reporting Hierarchy as the hierarchy preference. 
Tip: Prepare a list of users who you want to add to CRM and mark in which roles you want the users to be able to share data with their peers before you start adding users to the CRM account.

For example, if you have sales managers, sales executives, and sales reps in your organization, you can create these roles in CRM. Another benefit of creating roles is that it allows you to ...

                                                                            This is because the Share Data with Peers option is enabled for those users' role. The Share Data with Peers permission always takes precedence over data sharing rules.  Tip: To prevent your data from being compromised, the best practice is to ...

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 ...
