Default reporter


Under Organization, you can create units and specify where to reside in the organizational structure. You can also specify default contributors for each department. There is an organizational structure for the current year and one for the planning version. If you want to make organizational changes, you must first make sure that you are in the correct version. The options you receive hereafter are governed by the version you are in. The example below comes from the current version.

In Stratsys, most organizations are built in a tree structure. Clicking the plus and minus signs next to the department names shows or hides different parts of the organizational structure. Click on the button Expand the entire tree To view the entire organizational structure.

If you need to work with transverse units and areas in Stratsys, we recommend that you contact your consultant to find out which solution can suit you best. 

Add a new department

As you can see in the picture on the right, each level in the organization tree has its own AddLink. Open the level you want to add the new department to and click on the associated AddLink. In the image example, a click on the blue Link would add a department that was in the same level as the municipal board and the green link at the same level as the libraries.

A new window will open where you fill in the Name. If the department name is long and normally has a short designation, you can write it in the Designation. A designation is used in views where the department names are sometimes perceived to take too much space.

Hidden department
Allows members of the group to see departments that are marked as hidden. This check box appears if your permission set has the ability to see hidden departments. This setting allows only people with permission to see hidden departments to see this department in the organization tree. See User groups (General).

Obs! Information from hidden departments can be visible to all users by filtering on underlying departments as well as through reports created by users with permission to see hidden departments. See, among other things User groups.


Department groups
You can also select whether the new department belongs to a unit group. See Department Groups. 

Default reporters (report)
Here you can specify who will automatically be added as a manager when new reports are created. It is also possible to set up default contributors in the administration Users. Read more in Add user. See Also Default contributors and Default entities and for a more detailed description of the functionality.

Default Manager (Nodes)
Select the name and responsibility role that the setting should apply to. It is also possible to set up default contributors in the administration Users

Change a department group

To change an existing department group, click the name of the department in the department tree. You will then get to the page Change Department Where you fill in your changes and confirm them by clicking on the button Save.


A department must always have a name. If you change one of your department name, type the new name here.

If your departments also go under a different designation, you can fill out this. For example, the Apply departments abbreviations that take up less space if they are to be printed in a view.

Hidden departments
Only people with permission to see hidden departments will see this department in the organization tree.

Deparment groups
Here you select the department groups to which the department -belongs. See Department Groups. We recommend that each department belong to only one unit group, otherwise it may be difficult to deduce how ex. Filter settings That is based on a department group should affect the current department.

With is under And Place above Allows you to control the exact placement of the organization tree, including relationships between entities within the same level.

Obs! Moving departments to a different level, or merging two departments, affects scorecards and reports to a large extent. Consult with the responsible consultant on how to proceed.

Remove department

In the department tree, click the department that you want to delete. Page Change department Appears. Click on the button Remove, and then press to select OK In the dialog box that opens.

Obs! Only departments that have no sub-assemblies may be removed. Removing departments affects scorecards and reports to a large extent. Consult with the responsible consultant on how to proceed. 

Change a department in the planning version

When you want to make an organization change that takes effect only the following year, you do so when you are in the planning version.

Departments that you add here are visible only in the organization tree when you are in the planning version. If you make a change to a department that was added to a previous version, the change will only be visible in the planning version. If you want to make a change that will also be reflected in the current version, you must select the current version in the version picker before making the organization change.

Typically, organizational changes are made in the planning version. This makes it possible for the current year to continue its operational work while organizing changes can be made in the planning process. In the planning version, the changed departments are displayed using the following icons:

Default reporter

There are two different ways to automate the division of responsibilities in the tool. For text/dimension and activity nodes you can use default managers and for reports you use default contributors.

Default Manager (Nodes)
To speed up your planning work, you can define which users will automatically be added as managers in each Responsability role. Each unit can have one or more default operators. These people will automatically be responsible for new nodes that are created on or pushed down to the department. It is possible to administer the default contributors per unit under organization/default contributors and default operators of one unit or per Users

Specify the department and the responsibility roles to which the user will automatically generate.

In the change mode of nodes, you can manually change who is responsible if the responsibility is to be allocated to someone who is not the default manager.

Obs! For Activity nodes (and some customers, too), the default manager is set only on the drive where the node is created-not on departments to which the node is made visible.

Default reporter (report)
You have the option to set up default contributors for each unit. The users who are default contributors on the departments automatically become contributors when a new report is created on the department, when a report is assigned to the department from above, or when you choose to restore default contributors for a reporting entity. See administering reporter for a report.

Obs! In an already existing report, the new maintainer is added except where individual default contributors are manually removed. Manually added contributors are not affected by the setting up of a default reporter for the department.

If you would like to use default contributors in old reports, you can read more about it in the article administering contributors for a report.

To add one or more users as the default reporter, you can go into the organization settings in the administration and click on the department(s) you wish users to become the default reporter for. You can also set this setting in the user settings. See Add user.

It is also possible to administer the default contributors per unit under organization/default contributors and default managers for a unit.

It is not possible to set default reporters for a particular scorecard such as the environmental plan or the equal Treatment plan.
