for what-if analysis. These tables are known as reporting tables, and the environment in which you work with these tables is known as the reporting environment. When you work in the reporting environment, you work in reporting mode. By default, reporting mode is turned off; Assignment Manager does not write to the reporting tables. Using Siebel Tools, you can configure Assignment Manager to use reporting tables and columns (in lieu of actual assignment tables) by defining Assignment Object and Assignment Object Extension object properties. NOTE: You can retrieve reporting mode table data by using native database utilities, such as SQL*Plus, Query Analyzer, and so on. Do not modify or delete this data. Rather, assignment administrators should use the reporting tables to preview the temporary reporting results before executing Assignment Manager in actual production tables.

Siebel Assignment Manager Administration Guide Version 8.1, Rev. A Advanced Siebel Assignment Manager Configuration Configuring Siebel Assignment Manager to Use Reporting Tables and Columns 264 About Reporting Tables You can think of the reporting tables as temporary draft tables that allow you to preview the results of Assignment Manager processing to see the changes that are going to be made before committing those changes to the actual database. Reporting allows you to run Assignment Manager multiple times without impacting current assignments. Assignment Manager can write to the reporting tables independently of whether results are written to actual assignment tables or not. The reporting tables are especially useful when you want to filter and operate on a subset of candidates. About Reporting Mode When merging records in reporting mode, Assignment Manager runs in one of the following modes: Snapshot mode. Assignment Manager reads from and writes to the reporting team tables only. Running in snapshot mode is similar to running in production mode, except that the result tables are different. Assignment Manager stores the results tables in the Assignment Object Extension object in Siebel Tools. In snapshot mode, the reporting team tables store a snapshot of the results. Delta mode. Assignment Manager reads from the current actual assignments but writes to the reporting team tables. In delta mode, Assignment Manager stores the delta as compared with current actual assignments to the reporting tables. Assignment Manager also stores the delta information about whether a particular candidate was added or dropped, as compared with the same account or contact in actual assignments. You can later use this information to run reports. NOTE: The values in the Assignment Object Extension object properties determine what columns are used to determine which candidates were added or dropped, which tables to use for reporting, which column to use as the key column, and which columns to use as the position, employee, or organization column.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
