    Hi Anurag,

    This should be quite straight forward in BPC, as long as all your managers are also defined as employees.

    You define your structure level per level in BPC. For example, the following structure

    World

    -Europe

    -France

    -North America

    -US

    -Canada

    You would use the following properties in BPC

    ID | ParentH1

    Emp1 Emp5

    Emp2 Emp5

    Emp5 Emp6

    ParentH1 is the property you use to specify the parent of a member for hierarchy 1. BPC has the folowing restrictions for ID:

    - maximum 20 characters

    - no spaced allowed

    - you can only use letters (small and captal), numbers, the underscore and the dot.

    ID with leading zeros are not recommeded either.

    Regards

      Hi Marcel

      Thanks, your answer was helpfull. Understood the hierarchy part.

      Can you further explain what do you mean by "You define your structure level per level in BPC" and the example below.

      In our scenario, the levels are not fixed. Depth of hierachy can vary (dynamic) based on employee-manager relationships defined in source data.

      Thanks
