Classic | Creating Organisation Hierarchy Units


Once the Organisation Hierarchy Levels have been defined, you can proceed to create the Organisation Hierarchy Units. An Organisation Hierarchy Unit is defined as a logical grouping within the company that will represent the hierarchical view once all the units have been created. For example, the employee is allocated to the Billing Cost Centre in the Finance Department within the Company. Once the relevant Organisation Hierarchy Units are added, you will be able to link the fields on the Employee Position Screen.
