What is the difference between this 2 domains:

  • "Succession (MDF Position based nominations)" - Ad Hoc Report of this domain will fetch only those positions or incumbents who has successors.
  • "Succession By MDF Position (Inclusive, for Succession only)" domain - Ad Hoc Report of this domain will fetch all positions or incumbents even though if they do not have successors.

  2. Go To Admin Center > Manage Position > Selcet Position from Drop Down > Search for the Position Code

  • Open the CSV file
  • In CSV file look into "externalName.en_GB". This column does not have value for all position IDs.

This is why Position Title does not come in Ad Hoc Report.
Whatever the default language is set, according to that values of "Position Title" must be available in respected language column in MDF Position Export file.

Resolution

Fill the Position Titles in "externalName.en_GB" column and Re-import the MDF Position CSV file.
NOTE- Be very careful while performing any "MDF position Import". If you need any clarification on this please create a new ticket Succession Team.
