We get the current user’s manager and put the value into a Person or Group column in a list. This one only works in SharePoint Server 2010 & SharePoint Foundation, because the UserProfileService Web Service is only available there.

The code is relatively straightforward: a call to SPServices to get the results from GetUserProfileByName and then a little more code to poke it into the appropriate Person or Group column. In this case, the Person or Group column is called ‘Manager’.

Below is the code:

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”../../JSLibrary/jquery-1.3.2.min.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”../../JSLibrary/jquery.SPServices-0.4.8.min.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function () {
var managerName;
var userName = $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser();
operation: “GetUserProfileByName”,
async: false,
AccountName: userName,
completefunc: function (xData, Status) {
managerName = $(xData.responseXML).text();
var managerLength = managerName.length;
var indexofManager = managerName.indexOf(“Manager”);
managerName = managerName.substring(indexofManager + 13, managerLength);
var indexOffalse = managerName.indexOf(“false”);
managerName = managerName.substring(0, indexOffalse);
var peoplepicker = $(“tr:contains(‘Reporting Manager’):last”).find(“div[title=’People Picker’]”);
