Will salary transfers be visible to all users?

Only users with "payroll" permission will be able to view individual transfers within a Payroll batch transfer. Non-payroll users can still access the payroll batch transfer. However, they will only see the total amount for the batch and will not have access to view individual transaction details or the total number of transfers made in the batch.The "Payroll" permission will be automatically assigned to all users with the Admin role. Admins can grant this permission to any user with the Finance role.To learn how admin users can grant payroll permission to Finance Users, refer to this FAQ.
