Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Reports and click on Create adhoc report
  2. Select Succession (Position-based nomination) report
  3. Generate a report for the user/incumbent that does not have any nominee, but does have a position code
  4. The incumbent is not visible in the adhoc report alven though it is present in the Position file


Succession (Position-based nomination) report is designed not to show Incumbent without successors/nomination. This is how it is designed to work.


  • If you want to see Incumbents without nominees/successors in the adhoc report, then use another Succession adhoc report named Inclusive Succession (Position-based nomination) adhoc report
  • This report is designed to show incumbents even though they don’t have nominees
