    (Reporting) Line Manager: The system accesses the organizational structure at the level of the employee who submitted the approval task and searches upward in the hierarchy until the manager above the employee is found.

    While creating an Org Unit, The Reporting Line function defines the org unit as part of a reporting line.

    The manager assigned to this org unit is considered the reporting line manager for workflows. By not selecting this function, the assigned manager is treated as a functional manager for workflows.

    • Hi Prashant,

      Could you assist in the difference between reporting line manager and functional manager ? In the system what are the differences in these types of managers ? During which process would functional manager come into picture ?

      Best Regards
