C4C distinguishes in its Employee maintenance strictly between Organizational Assignments as Manager (Role code 218) and Organizational Assignments as Employee (Role code 219). It is assumed that whenever a Manager is part of the Department, he/ she is managing not only an assignment as Manager is maintained, but also an assignment as Employee.

On the header section of the Employee UI, only the Department and Job of the Employee Organizational Assignment are shown. The full data can be seen on the facet Organizational Assignments, which you can navigate as below:

  1. Go to People workcenter
  2. Go to Employees view
  3. Show All Employees
  4. Find the Employee ID XXXXX that you uploaded
  5. Select the Employee ID XXXXX
  6. Go to the Organizational Assignments
  7. You will be able to see the Assigned as Manager details


In the upload file for the Employee Organizational Unit Assignment, provide an Organizational Assignment as Employee for Employee XXXXX
