Title: Manager Desktop

Location: Michigan Union - Anderson A

Description: Manager Desktop is a new application that will be available in January 2007. This new application provides line managers with access to information on employees which report to them. Drill-down capabilities let managers see a complete picture of people that report to them, but who are not direct reports. This "reports to" hierarchy will be based on a "supervisor id" field and the population and maintenance of this field is an online process for units. A method to produce VISIO organization charts is also available and will be demonstrated.
