  • Qualifier:
    -Selected element only:
    Report will filter on just the selected user.
    -Selected element and all descendants to distance:
    Report will filter on the selected person and all their direct and indirect reports down to the level specified by Distance.
    -All descendants to distance:
    Report will filter on only the selected persons direct and indirect reports down to the level specified by Distance(note this option does not include the selected user itself).
    -All descendants at distance only:
    Report will filter on only the selected users reports at the level specified by Distance.
    -Selected element and all descendants:
    Report will filter on the selected person and all their direct and indirect reports.
    -All descendants:
    Report will filter on all the selected person’s direct and indirect reports.

  • Distance: How “far” down the people structure to retrieve results. Eg: a setting of 1 will retrieve just direct reports.
  • Person: "Logged In User" will default the report to the reports of the user who is viewing the report –otherwise click this option to manually set a particular user.
