JustNudge Software has released a widget that allows for the organizational reporting chain to be modified from within the application itself using a bottom up approach – that is where a person selects their manager. This allows the structure to be developed organically without the need for a large IT project to update the structure if it doesn't exist accurately at the moment, thereby making Lotus Connections implementations just that little bit easier.
Updating your reporting structure is as easy as navigating to your manager and clicking a button!
The widget is simple to use and can be modified either "top-down" – where a manager chooses profiles that report to them, or "bottom-up" – where a person chooses their alternate manager. This is done by finding the appropriate profile and selecting the button in the widget:
Our profile progress widget provides visual feedback and tips to help the user populate their profile using a visual feedback mechanism similar to that provided on LinkedIn. This feedback allows the system to be populated according to the requirements of your organisation, for example, if there is a particular field within the profile that is valuable from an organisation perspective then the profile weighting can be adjusted to both advise and reward the user to populate that field.
