2085369 - Error - Dates of Prior Work Experience Overwriting Current Job Start Date - Succession

Symptom

  • Succession: Dates of Prior Work Experience Overwriting Current Job Start Date

Environment

  • Succession Management

Cause

  • Importing prior work experience information into users’ live profile.
  • Unfortunately there is no way to turn off the automatic population/update of the standard element 'dateOfPosition'. However, there is a simple workaround that could achieve your objective. Create a userinfo field called 'dateOfCurrentPosition' assign it a type of 'date', and hide the standard element 'dateofPosition'.

Resolution

  • You use Succession Management. When you import prior work experience information into users’ live profile, the dates for this prior work experience are being populated into the DateOfPosition field (“Current Job Start Date” on the Live Profile page).
  • You would prefer it if the current Job Start Date did not change when you chose to import prior work experience.
