SAP SuccessFactors uses data from the User Data File (UDF) to determine the reporting relationships between employees. These reporting relationships are used to determine who can see whose goals in SAP SuccessFactors. These relationships are also used to permission goal plan actions such as adding, deleting, and cascading goals.
Line of Sight is defined as goal visibility up, down and across the organization. Visibility is permissioned by role for each client’s goal plan based on the business needs and culture of the company.

Different companies may have entirely different visibility permission models. Some may restrict visibility of goals to only go down the management hierarchy while others may be configured for full visibility up, down and across all levels.
