Snapshot - Succession

The Succession page enables the users with the appropriate permissions to view the user's succession information. Note: The Succession page is only available to the manager of a user and administrators.

Administrators can configure the Snapshot - Succession page to display user-based potential successors, position-based potential successors, and incumbents and positions for which the user is named as a potential successor.

  • User-based potential successors appear in the Potential Successors - User section.
  • Position-based potential successors appear in the Potential Successors - Position section.
  • Incumbents for whom the user is named as a potential successor appear in the Succession Information - Incumbent section.
  • Positions for which the user is named as a potential successor appear in the Succession Information - Position section.

Note: If any potential successor becomes Inactive in the system, then they no longer appear on the Snapshot - Succession page.

The Snapshot > Succession page has the same functionality as the My Team > Succession page. The functionality on this page is controlled by the administrator in Succession Preferences.

To access the Succession Snapshot page, go to Home > Universal Profile. Then, click the Snapshot tab. Then, click the Succession widget.

View Team

The View Team flyout is designed to allow managers, approvers, and custom relationships to quickly navigate between subordinates' profiles and transcripts. When enabled, the View Team flyout is available to managers and dotted line managers on all pages of their Universal Profile and the Universal Profile of their subordinates. This flyout displays the manager's reports visually.

The View Team button only displays if enabled in the portal. Administrators may enable or disable this flyout via the My Team Dropdown section within Universal Profile General Preferences. See Universal Profile General Preferences.

See Universal Profile - View Team Flyout.

Add Successors

On the Snapshot - Succession page, the Add Successors drop-down menu enables users to add potential successors for the user. This drop-down menu is only available to users who have permission to manage succession information on the Snapshot - Succession page. See Snapshot - Succession - Add Successors.

Ratings

The Ratings section displays the user's succession information and ratings. Administrators can configure the content and layout of the Ratings section in Succession Preferences. See Snapshot Succession Preferences - Succession.

The succession ratings that are displayed are automatically updated with the results of each Succession Management Planning (SMP) task. For example, if a succession rating is updated during a SMP task, then the latest rating is displayed on the Snapshot - Succession page.

When viewing the Succession page for a user, managers may be able to edit their subordinate's succession information and ratings by clicking the Edit icon in the Ratings section. This option is only available to users who have permission to manage succession information on the Snapshot Succession page. See Snapshot - Succession - Edit Ratings.

Potential Successors

The Potential Successors section of the Snapshot: Succession page displays the potential successors who have been identified for the user. Managers can toggle between the Users and Position tabs within this section to view successors that are specific to the incumbent or to the incumbent's position.

  • User tab - This tab displays all internal and external users who have been identified as potential successors for the user.
  • Position tab - This tab displays all internal and external users who have been identified as potential successors for the user's position.

The potential successors who are displayed are automatically updated with the results of each Succession Management Planning (SMP) task. For example, if a potential successor is removed from a position during a SMP task, then the potential successor is also removed from the appropriate Snapshot - Succession pages.

See Snapshot - Succession - Potential Successors.
