Periodic repostings, assessment, distribution, and indirect activity allocation are defined using cycles. In a cycle you define the sender-receiver relationships and the corresponding distribution rules.

During periodic repostings, assessment, distribution, and indirect activity allocation, all sender-/receiver relationships defined in a cycle are processed together iteratively. If you want to process hierarchies separately, you must define a cycle for each level of the hierarchy. You then process the cycles in succession.
