The organizational structure is a directory, a list of employees to reflect of the hierarchy of departments and divisions and the content of information on the contact details of employees.
Organizational structures can be imported and exported:
Synchronization of the organizational structure of the Platform with the data on the organizational and staff structure of the organization is produced in two stages:
- Periodic uploading of data on the organizational structure of the organization into an xml-file (file format is described in paragraph
Formal description of data structures);
- Import data from xml-file according to the established schedule.
Data import to the organizational structure is performed by adding and updating data.
You can import an organizational structure in two ways:
- Manual import – using the button on the top panel of the organizational structure window. After clicking the «Import» button in the window that opens you need to select the data import method and specify the file to import in .xml format:
- Automatic import – import of data to the page of the organizational structure of their xml-file according to the established schedule. Automatic import configured in the Administration Center, in the Platform Management section – Update organization structure tasks management:
In the window that opens, you must specify the name of the update job, the import type, the site and the path to the file to import. You can also enable or disable the task using the check box.
There is an import with full update employee information (only new objects are added and existing organizational objects are updated) and an import with full update employee information with the movement between units. (only new ones are added and existing organizational structure objects are updated. At the same time, employees are removed from roles and divisions which is not listed in the “DepartmentUniqueNames” and “RoleUniqueNames” items of the import file). With both methods of import, divisions and roles are not removed from the organizational structure. In the case of importing an organizational structure file to an already existing hierarchy, data is merged (supplemented). If merging data is unacceptable, delete the existing organizational structure before importing. If the file for import does not contain any division that is in the organizational structure, then only employees will be removed from this division, the division will remain empty in the organizational structure. When you add roles and divisions on the site, corresponding SharePoint groups are created. When a role or division is completely removed from the organizational structure, the groups created from the site are also deleted. Information about deleted departments and roles from the document forms will also be deleted and the fields in which this information was displayed are cleared.
Described in document import organizational structure may be either an initial loading means organizational structure and adjusting means. In the settings you can specify any frequency of data import. The frequency of updating the organizational structure can be configured in the “Platform: Updating organization structure” task menu in the task settings in the Administration Center:
You can also adjust the organizational structure manually, by highlighting the required attribute and clicking the «Edit» button on the top panel:
The organizational structure should be described in four data formats:
- A company as a top level department;
- Employee (users who have accounts in AD participate are involved within the framework of data exchange between systems).
Each organizational structure element has its own UniqueName, which can be generated in two ways: either by the system automatically (32x-digit number – guid is formed during creation), or you can manually specify the desired name.
