Step 2: Event reason

  2. Search Event Reason  “Data Change”
  3. In correction mode, change the " My Internal Job History" Flag to “Yes” and Save.4Error.png
  4. Repeat step #3 for other valid event reasons.  This controls what type of history will default into the new job history portlet.   Recommended events to change are “New Hire”, “Job Reclassification”, “Promotion”, “Promotion – No Pay Change”, etc.

Step 3:

  1. Go to Admin > Configure Business Rules and Create A New Rule

    1. Rule ID = emp_job_history

    2. Rule Name = Internal Job History

    3. Base Object = Job Information

    4. Rule Type = Position Management or Employee Updates

    5. Create an “if” statement Event Reason:My Internal Job History = Yes





 Step 4: Profile or Employee profile

  1. Go to Admin > Configure Employee Files and select the view(s) you would like to add the new portlet to.

Example here: Talent Profile


  1. Select “Insert Portlet” where you would like the portlet to show up and “Create and Add” the Internal Job History portet.  You may also wish to delete the former “Work Experience Within Company” section since this is now a duplicate.


  1. Configure the Internal Job History Portlet to include the fields you would like to display and save. Make sure to Save Dashboard when done!



 Step 5: Roles Based Permission

  1. Go to Admin > Manage Permission Roles to give access to the Internal Job History portlet.  There is no need to give “edit” access since this is displaying information from Employee Central.    Access should be added to System Admin, HR Role, Manager, and Employee Self Service roles.



 Step 6: Test

  1. Enjoy your new Internal Job History portlet!  Note:  Product management is working on the issue of the start and end dates not lining up.  This is supposed to automatically fill in any applicable gaps.  If needed, you can leave out the End Date when configuring the portlet in step #4.
