- For the ‘User’ domains, when the people scope is enabled, it will restrict the data to the Manager reports. For example, direct reports or further levels down. It will not provide data for peers or level up hierarchy. For example, it will not show manager or peers data.
How to see the "People scope" option:

Access the Reporting Tab > New > Report - Canvas > Add A List Component > Edit the Component > Select Detailed Reporting as the Data source> start a new query
- Select Detailed Reporting, to access to the query designer (If you don't see this option, you need to contact your local administrator to get access) - You should see the following screenshot
- Select "Live" data to see the Learning schema
- Expand "Learning" to open all Metrics available.
If you don't see anything in Learning, you need to contact your local administrator as you require Learning Permission (called Workflow) to be able to report on Learning Data - You should have the following Screenshot

- Select "Edit"
- The "People Scope" feature will be displayed but "Grey" as this user doesn't have enough permission. Please read the following section to understand how People Scope behave.
How to use "People Scope"?:
People scope is only available on the “User” reports of Learning subdomain schemas in ORD.
This means that it only applies to the user reporting relationships in terms of who I can see similar to the user side LMS reports.
E.g : In the following Screenshot, If I am a supervisor. The people scope will allow me to filter on those that report up to me through the various levels indicated, but if I am not the supervisor of a particular group, people scope has no bearing as I am not allowed to see other teams data. The ORD subdomain schemas that are based on my Admin view (LMS Domains) of records are the ones that do NOT start with the word user. Those however do not have people scope filtering, because people scope is already defined in your domain access in the LMS of who you can report on, and they can use org filtering from that end of it.
For the ‘User’ domains, when the people scope is enabled, it will restrict the data to the Manager reports. For example, direct reports or further levels down.
It will not provide data for peers or level up hierarchy. For example, it will not show manager or peers data.
