Understanding "Reports To"

In PeopleSoft...

In the PeopleSoft-HR system, positions report to positions.  This “reports to” field has implications for other processes and systems:

  • Ability to approve reported absences in AMSS
  • Assignment of "supervisor" training to those who lead or direct the work of other employees
  • Ability to view required training reports for managers and leads

All of the above functions are either "on" or "off" for a position in PeopleSoft-HR.

Who is the “Reports To”? What is it used for in the DTS?

The “reports to” field is pulled, with employee data, from PeopleSoft-HR and imported in the DTS. 

The "reports to" field and other criteria in PeopleSoft are used to automatically assign the "Required Training for Managers and Leads" learning track. The learning track folder includes assignment of the e-course, "EDU Supervisor: Anti-Harassment, Discrimination, Retaliation."

The DTS also uses the “reports to” field on reports when an employee needs to complete training and the lead/manager needs to be notified.

How to Change the “Reports To”

How can you change (the lead/manager position) who is cc'd on incomplete training notices?

Faculty or Staff:

  • Please notify pdev@csuchico.edu and we will contact the "reports to" maintainer for your unit/college and work with them to update PeopleSoft.

Student Employees:

  • If a change in the student employee “Reports To” field is desired, please work with Yvonne Bealer, Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS), x5477. A Student Employee Reports to Maintainer Guide also provides directions for updating this information for those who have already been working with Yvonne on this project.
