Infomation Broadcasting with Email Bursting with hierarchy

Hi,

We have a scenario where based on the employee hierachy, we need to use email bursting. We have following emplyoee hierarchy.

Employee_Manager

-> Employee_1

-> Employee_2

The infocube contains data for expense made by each employee. So if employee_manager should be able to get expense incurred by employee_1, employee_2 and employee_manager.

The requirement is to send report to manager for expense made by his/her team.

This employee infoobject has the attribute as username where the email should be sent.

The problem is ->

when I run the email bursting with selection employee manager, it only sends data for employee_manager and not for employee_1 and employee_2.

So basically the email bursting does not consider hierarchy.

Any inputs is appreciated.

Thanks,

Parin Gandhi.

      Hello

      Is there any concrete solution experienced by any of you ? I would think that with creating as many roles (with hierarchy node restrictions) as there are nodes in the hierachy and then brodcast to <Users in role> X with as many scheduling as there are node levels, this would do it ? Very tedious but would it really work ?

    Hi Parin,

    Hope you are doing well. It seems bit tricky. I would try by creating a hierarchy node variable & restricting that to emploeyee manager. It may help you to avoid skipping of em_1 & emp_2 from distributing report. Not sure if it helps.

    Cheers,

    Ramesh
