About Setting Up Employee Positions and Employee Reporting Structure for Forecasting
Siebel Forecasting relies on employee positions and positional hierarchies when creating a forecast. The forecast participants must appear in the employee table and have a position to create a forecast. Employee relationships between a manager and an employee are established by way of the parent position field on the employee's position record and on the organization to which they belong.
For more information on adding employees and employee relationships, see the chapter that discusses initial setup in Siebel Applications Administration Guide.
