When importing users via API it would be very helpful to be able to turn on the manager experience with the import.
Would love to be able to import managers using the API. Seems like (based on discussions with our Absorb client relationship manager), there is no good way to maintain a list of Managers for Direct Reports. (No way to create Groups via API; No way to set "IsManager" via API).
Thank you for the clarification. The Absorb team may consider this as an update the API in a future revision.
our need is - like you describe - that we can set the ismanager toggle via API and to assign the correct role.
The current setup to assign the reporting users directly is not ideal. The way to assign a department like in isadmin is closer to our HR system setup.
Thank you for this idea submission. Can you please clarify that what you're asking for is:
that on the user record, via API, the isManager property can be set and that the correct role is assigned to the user on import
Please also let us know how you plan to assign direct reports for this new manager.
