Create Custom Report - Requisition/OU Filters

Custom Reports Deprecation: Cornerstone will be deprecating the legacy reporting solution "Custom Reports" with the February ’21 Release. For more information, see the announcement in the May '20 release notes and in the May '20 Release Summary & Matrix.

When configuring custom Recruiting reports, the User/OU Filters tab is named Requisition/OU Filters. The Requisition/OU Filters tab allows report data to be constrained by the Location organizational unit (OU) that is defined for the job requisition.

Requisition/OU Filters

The Requisition/OU Filters tab displays a Requisition Criteria option. This option allows the report to be constrained by the employees/applicants who meet the OU criteria defined in the field. The following criteria options are available in the Select Criteria drop-down:

  • Division
  • Position
  • Location

The number of results displays in parentheses to the right of the drop-down.

Constraint Behavior

The reporting constraints use the OR logic within the same OU criteria and use AND logic for inter-OU type.

For example, an organization sets up constraints for Location OU Korea and Position OU Sales. By using the OR logic within the same OU criteria and the AND logic for inter-OU type, the report only shows Location OU Korea and Position OU Sales.

Reporting works this way to account for privacy laws. If OR logic was used for inter-OU type, when the report is run it would include requisitions from Location OU Korea or Position OU Sales. With such a report, requisitions for Location OU Germany and Position OU Sales might also be returned.
