2439679 - Save Draft: support for saving information related to transferring incumbents


When we navigate to Job Information section after retrieving a Save Draft, the Direct Subordinate option that was selected before saving the draft (Transfer to new recruit / Stay with current manager) is missing. If we complete the workflow, the subordinates are not transferred based on the selection made before saving the draft.


Employee Central: New Hire

Employee Central: People Profile

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Admin Centre -> Add New Employee.
  2. Fill up essential details in Identity and Personal Information sections.
  3. In Job Information section, search for a managerial position which is available for a new hire.
  4. Select either Everyone transfers to new recruit or Everyone stays with current manager.
  5. Click on Save Draft.
  6. Navigate to Admin Centre -> Manage Pending Hires.
  7. From Drafts drop-down, click on Hire for the previously saved draft.
  8. In the Job Information section, the position is still selected, however the option regarding direct subordinates is missing.


The feature is not yet suported in Save Draft.


As a work around, please select the position again for the direct subordinate options to appear.

This is an enhancement request and currently there is no roadmap for it.
