2157515 - Succession Position adhoc report functionality


Succession (Position-based nomination) adhoc report does not show incumbent without nominee.


  • Succession
  • Adhoc Report

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Reports and click on Create adhoc report.
  2. Select Succession (Position-based nomination) report.
  3. Generate a report for the user/incumbent that does not have any nominee but has a position code.
  4. You won’t be able to see that incumbent in the adhoc report even though it is present in the Position file.


Succession (Position-based nomination) report is designed not to show Incumbent without successors/nomination. This is how it is designed to work.


If you want to see Incumbents without nominees/successors in the adhoc report then we can use another Succession adhoc report, named Inclusive Succession (Position-based nomination) adhoc report.

This report is designed to show incumbents even though they don’t have nominees.
