An organizational levelis a layer in a hierarchical order that is representative of the structure of your firm. For example, if your firm has branch offices in different cities and in different states, the city organizational level would be below the state organizational level. In Ajera, organizational levels provide a framework that makes it easier to set up and maintain reporting entities on multiple levels.
If your corporate structure consists of one layer, you can easily create reporting entities without organizational levels. Simply group together existing departments in the Reporting Entity window.
Starting from the bottom
First, enter your company's hierarchical levels in the Organizational Levels window (Company > Financials > Organizational Levels). For example, your organizational levels may be Department, City, State, Region, and Company.
Then, beginning with the level that is immediately above the Department level, create reporting entities in the Reporting Entity window (Company > Financials > Reporting Entities > New button). Create a reporting entity by selecting the departments that belong in that entity.
In this example, the City level is immediately above the Department level. You create the Portland reporting entity by grouping together the Portland Architectural and Portland Admin departments.
After you create reporting entities for that level, move up to the next level. Create reporting entities by grouping together reporting entities from the previous level.
