Difference between "Grant Access Using Hierarchies" for OWD and public groups
A simple example can be assume opportunity is private OWD and you are Sales Rep owning an opportunity record ,you have your manager who is higher in the role hierarchy than you ,even though opportunity is private he will still get access to your records .

Controlling Access Using Hierarchies:
Thanks for the answers.
Just to confirm, I am referring to the below checkbox when configuring a public group:
My question is on the interaction between "Grant Access Using Hierarchies" here in public groups, and "Grant Access Using Hierarchies" as part of the OWD of a custom object.
Let's say a sharing rule grants access to a public group for the records of a custom object:
There are two situations which are confusing for me:
1. "Grant Access Using Hierarchies" is ticked for the public group and not ticked for the custom object's OWD
2. "Grant Access Using Hierarchies" is ticked for the custom object's OWD but not for the public group
In both examples, would those users with roles above the group members' inherit access to the records granted by the sharing rule?
