2333909 - Changing Effective As of Date Doesn't Update the Hire Date Field in Employment Details


  • Hire Date field can't be changed directly from the Employment Details portlet or from Take Action > Employment Details page. This is an expected behaviour.
  • Changing the Effective as of date in the oldest record in the Job history updates the Hire Date field in the Employment Details portlet.
  • This seems to work for some records and not for others. There is no apparent difference between the two records.
