Manager Structures in Single Sign On (SSO) applications represent the relationship between an employee and a supervisor. Most of the time this relationship follows the same pattern as the one used in the agency’s organization chart. However, in some cases, the employee may have more than one supervisor. For example the employee’s direct supervisor is different than the supervisor that approves the employee’s timesheet.
To facilitate the use of real world management relationships, SSO uses management structures that are application specific and is commonly referred to as an ‘Application Structure’
All employees will have a Standard application structure that will be used as the default for all applications and is usually configured as part of new employee processing. The available application structures are listed below.
- Standard – usually represents the relationship between the employee and their direct supervisor as it is defined in Workday
- Time and Effort – used in the Time and Effort application for employees who report time to someone other than the supervisor in their Standard structure
