When importing data, what does the term Boss ID mean?

Q.  When importing data, what does the term Boss ID mean and what does it do?
 
A.  The Boss ID is used to create the org chart.  We need to know the relationships between persons to build the chart.  We ask users to provide, for example
 
ID
First Name
Last Name
Role
Boss ID
 
In the following example the variables provided in the csv file for import are: 
 
 
1,Bob,Doe,CFO,
2,Steve,Smith,CTO,1
 
 
Organimi processes this information and concludes that Steve reports to Bob. Bob reports to no one.  So Bob is assigned to the top role of the chart.
 
The resulting chart generated by Organimi is as follows:
 
 Bob
   |
Steve
