    Hi Sudipto,

    I'll give my comments as well..

    From your replies I understood that for the input employee, the HOD might not be assigned to the same organizational unit as the employee or that there can be multiple managers and only one HoD in an org unit, right? And this is why you can't retrieve the immediate superior with the standard rules, right?

    The main question here is that how do you then identify that a manager or a manager position is an HoD. Is the HoD assigned to a manager position in the next upper organisation unit, does he have special authorizations or other characteristics which differentiate him from normal superiors assigned to manager positions or is there another rule how the HoD can be determined from the org chart?

    When the business logic of the retrieval is clearly defined, you can then code the logic with ABAP and retrieve the correct agent to the workflow. The code itself could be using e.g. a mixture of evaluation paths and standard function modules but the logic has to be defined first.

    Hope this helps,

    Mikko
