Categorizing a user by corporate hierarchy

Categorize a Person document in the IBM® Domino® Directory by corporate hierarchy. Then, when users search for the name in the corporate directory, the name shows the corporate hierarchy.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, select the server that stores the Domino® Directory to modify.
  2. Click the People & Groups tab.
  3. Select People, select the user's Person document, and click Edit Person.
  4. Click the Work/Home tab.
  5. Click the Corporate Hierarchy Information tab.
  6. Optional: If you want the user's name to appear in a specific order relative to other names categorized in the same way, in the Personal ranking field, enter a number to indicate the order in which the user's name should appear. A user name given a ranking of 1 is listed before a name with a ranking of 2, and so on. Leave the Personal ranking field blank to sort the user's name alphabetically by last name among other names without a ranking.
  7. In theHierarchy 1 column, type categories in the Level fields by which to sort the user's name. Repeat this step to assign the user to up to three additional hierarchies.
  8. Click Save & Close.

    For example, to create the following two hierarchies for the user Judy Kaplan:

    • Marketing
      • Planning
        • Kaplan, Judy
    • Philadelphia
      • Kaplan, Judy

    complete the Corporate Hierarchy Information tab of her Person document as follows:
