Is it Possible to Add More Hierarchy Options for Compensation > Tree Builder ?

(Doc ID 2002618.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2018

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM eCompensation - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Many companies use a "Partial Position Management" methodology to manage positions.  However, the eCompensation tree builder (located at:  Set Up HCM > Product Related > Compensation > Utilities >Tree Builder Utility) only allows for a Hierarchy Basis of "Position" or "Supervisor ID;" it doesn't support the build method.  

This is a significant limitation to the product, and extremely frustrating and costly, since other products (like Company Directory, Delegations, and ePerformance) do allow for a "Part Position Management Supervisor" build method.

The Compensation Tree builder utility only offers 2 Hierarchy options while everywhere else in the system there are many more options.

Main Menu > Setup HCM > Product Related > Compensation > Utilities > Tree Builder Utility

Hierarchy and Tree Setup > Hierarchy Basis
- Position
- Supervisor ID

Options available for Company Directory, Delegation and Performance Management are:

By Department Manager ID
By Group Id
By Manager ID
By Par Posn Mgmt Dept Mgr ID
By Part Posn Mgmnt Supervisor
By Reports To Position
By Supervisor ID

Is it possible to add more Hierarchy Basis options?
