<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']");



Above code will help you to get manager.You can set it to any of the control & get it from there in Client side code. I had set it to SharePoint People Picket for an example here.

It is surely working in SharePoint Foundation 2010.

  • Ok, In this case If me as logged in user sending an email to say 'User5' then how to get its manager information like email id ?

  • It's completely a different scenario as you can get user's manager via c# code. Please raise proper question for this so i can provide sample source code to get logged in user's manager.

  • Actually not expecting c# code here, but atleast should know how to define relationship like User4,USer5,User6,User7 has a User1 as manager. Then there should be a=some way to get managers list for user.

  • You can get list of manager by changing the last code as per your need.
