Human Resources Headcount Report


Return to Human Resources Model Overview

This report shows data and information for entries and leaves of employees that are stored in the Personnel Costs cube. It focuses on planning headcounts and full-time-equivalent (FTE) information for several planning versions, including budget and forecast.

Employee records that are not stored in the source system can be added with the Human Resources Add Employee report by clicking on the  icon, as indicated in the screenshot below:

Data entry requires an existing employee in the Employee dimension and the selection of a single legal entity and single cost center. If a change is entered for a single month, then it will affect the rest of the months in the same year.

Report Heading

The screenshot below shows the heading area of the Human Resources Headcount report. The report heading updates dynamically as various reporting options are selected. The logo can be changed in Administration; see Configuring Design Elements for more on report design.

The heading area of the report displays the following fields:

The content of the report can be customized using the PoV options, which can be viewed by clicking the blue arrow at the top of the report.

Human Resources Add Employee Report

With this report, new employees can be added to the Employee dimension. Values for headcount and full time equivalent (FTE) will be written to the Personnel Costs cube. Depending on the selected planning version, the value will be written in the first plannable month; for example, the Budget version starts with first month of the year, while the Forecast 3+9 version will start with the fourth month of year.

Settings are the same as for the comboboxes in Human Resources Headcount, described above under Point of View (PoV) Options. Employees can only be added if a value is written in the Employee No. input area.

The components of the Human Resources Add Employee report are described below.




Employee No.

Number for new employee

Employee number will be added to Employee dimension as element


Name of new employee

Employee name will be written into Name attribute of Employee dimension


Value for headcount

Value for FTE

Cell Locking

For all planning reports, data entry is only possible when a single legal entity and a single cost center are selected. Cell locking prevents the entry of data in fields that draw on multiple sources.
