Here, you can choose which groups of colleagues will be visible to the employees in your company. By default, employees will see all people from their Department, and their Manager. However, you can select the rest of the options and customize the visibility of this widget for your employees.

In the group Reports, you can also pick if you what the users to show only their Direct reports or all reports (direct and indirect).
The group My picks will allow your employees to choose the colleagues whose information they would like to see in their widget.

Once you change the configuration of this widget and select all the sections you want to leave available for your employees, make sure you click on SAVE to apply the new settings.

Once you have configured the different options for the widget, the My colleagues' widget will show all the employees belonging to each group. If you hover the mouse over a name, you can see extra information on the tooltip, such as the group they belong to, if they are away, or if the employee is your manager or your report.
