No. As of now, the only condition controling the access to the "Number of Openings" field in the Position Org Chart job requisition creation page is the number of current and maximum number of incumbents allowed in that position. If both numbers are the same (e.g.: "3/3 FTE"), the "Number of Openings" field will be always set as 1 and not open for change. If both numbers are different (e.g.: "2/5 FTE"), the "Number of Openings" field will be open as a free text box, allowing the job requisition originator to select a value for it.

If further control over this field is required, it will have to be managed in the job requisition approval process, where permissions will be controled by what is in the respective job requisition template.

We are always welcome to suggestions of changes to our system behavior. For that, please follow our Enhancement Request process.
