2085418 - Nominations - How do I change the stored readiness value for a succession nomination? - Succession

Symptom

  • Is it possible to change the Readiness Scale and also update the existing values on nominations?

Environment

  • Succession Management

Resolution

  • Form based and formless succession nomination forms allow the nominator to enter a readiness value. This value comes from admin tools > Rating Scales > Readiness (Note: Case sensitive and is exactly "Readiness" and cannot be "readiness")
  • The completed nomination forms then store the values in a place in the system where they can only be changed through the nomination process. It is not possible currently to export the values or re-import new values.
  • Therefore, if you were to change the Readiness Scale, the existing historical nominations will be negatively impacted as the value they have (say a "3" which may have been "Ready Now") will show a different label on your new scale. Maybe on the new scale the "3" that historical records already have maps to a new label of "Ready 1-3 years" and no longer the "Ready Now" that needs to show.
