Insight Visibility & Comment Notifications

Insights created for an employee are not visible to the employee themselves. 

Users with visibility into an employee's Insight include:

Similarly, users with visibility into an employee can comment on an existing Insight. Any user with visibility into an employee can view these comments, but only followers receive email notifications for new comments.
