2945113 - Show labels in a hierarchical structure in Report Center

Symptom

  • This new company wide switch introduced in Report Center allows displaying hierarchical display of labels even if the parent label(s) does not have reports associated
  • This KBA will explain this feature in detail 

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Resolution

Location:

The switch is called 'Show labels in a hierarchical structure' and is located in
Admin Center > Reporting and Analytics > Manage Report Center

 

Default settings:

This switch was introduced on the 4th of July and will be disabled by default.

Caution:

This switch changes the behaviour for all users and not just the one enabling it.


Behaviour Compared:

  • If a nested label has reports associated only a few nodes / levels, currently report center displays them in a merged fashion.
  • This switch allows displaying such nodes in a hierarchical / structure.

Consider the following scenario for a Label Structure:

LEVEL1
LEVEL2 (nester under LEVEL2)
LEVEL3 (nester under LEVEL3)
LEVEL4 (nester under LEVEL4)

The structure when laid out:
LEVEL1/LEVEL2/LEVEL3/LEVEL4

Example 1:

  • Associate an example report - Report4 with LEVEL4 Only
  • Before - All Labels till LEVEL4 are displayed in a merged fashion
  • After - All Lables till LEVEL4 are displayed in a hierarchial manner, though Levels1 to 3 do not have any reports in them.

 

 

Example 2:

  • Associate Report4 with LEVEL4 and Report2 with LEVEL2

 

 

Example 3:

  • Associate Report3 with LEVEL3 Only

 

 

Example 4:

  • Associate Report1 with LEVEL1 Only

 

 

Example 5:

  • Associate atleast one report each with all the Levels
  • No change in behaviour since Report Center will only display the nested labels till the nodes / levels that have reports associated

Functionality that will not be changed by this switch:

  • Individual (non-nested) Labels that do not have any reports associated with them will still not be displayed
  • Nested labels with reports associated in one or more of the nodes will be displayed only till the levels / nodes that have reports in them (Examples 3 and 4)
  • The access levels for Labels (Public vs Private) remain unchanged
  • Public and Private labels still cannot be mixed in a hierarchy
