Full Story

The 'Reports to' feature lets you create lists and target People based on who they report to in your organisation. The feature is also useful when doing a data clean up for your People. 

To use the 'Reports To' feature, you'll import/update your data. The import/update will include the Employee ID or the Email Address of the managers in your organisation. Using this information, Poppulo will automatically build a Hierarchy for your organisation. You can then search for People using the 'Reports to' feature, allowing you to target People based on who they report to.

To start using the 'Reports to' feature, choose an option below and follow the instructions:

To add additional reporting levels into Hierarchy, use the same format of defining the Employee ID and Manager ID for your People, just remember, the person at the top must always report to themselves.

Note: This option is for accounts using Employee ID as the Unique Identifier, please contact the Poppulo Support Team or your CSM to enable the feature.
