Pulling a specific employee's data



One of my department heads wants to be able to see the weekly / monthly / annual reports of any single employee that he wants to.

The reports that I have made, pull the data using the "Current user" function; then how do I fulfill the requirement of that department head please?

    Hi @Nasir@EBC

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Here are a couple of options.

    • The easiest way would probably be to copy the current ones, but they would need to change the criteria in each report depending on the specifics.
    • Another way would be to try and combine everything as it is in one report.
    • A third option, which would require the most work and pretty advanced, would be to add a so-called helper column to all sheets that would update from a selector and show the selected employee's data in a Dashboard/report.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, andree@workbold.com)

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!
