1 Answer 1


The visibility is indeed decided on the role, that is, if the sharing settings of that particular custom object are on private.

Where My Team's "custom object", are all your records, and all records of team members beneath you in the role hierarchy.

  • no, none of them are below me on the role hierarchy. Is that the way the my team works? it shows people ONLY below you (in the role heirarcy), AND you, but nobody else assigned to your role (in the heirarchy)? Mar 12, 2013 at 16:19
  • yes, this is how roles work, on all objects. if nobody is below you, you only see your records
