Updating Workforce Intelligence hierarchy information

Updated on March 18, 2021

When your organization hierarchy changes (for example, employees join or leave the organization or the departmental structure changes), record those changes and update Pega Workforce Intelligence™ to ensure accurate reporting.

To record changes to your hierarchy, you update the master hierarchy file, highlight the changes, and then submit a copy of that file to the Workforce Intelligence support team as an attachment to a support request. The Workforce Intelligence support team then implements the hierarchy changes.
