Propagating Job Information fields from Position in Success Factors Employee Central

In this blog content we are going to see how job information fields like Business Unit, Division, Department, Location etc.. are automatically populating based on the position you have entered in Position field under Position Information.


Since we have already maintained job related attributes in Position it is not required to enter the same data in Job information while hiring or making data changes for employees. This solution will help in reducing manual entry of Job Information attributes.


Let us consider we have a vacant position in organisation that yet to be hired. We have organization details also maintained in Position before hiring one person in that position





Hiring an employee in Success Factors



Maintaining all mandatory fields and you are reaching in the Job Information. Once you maintain Position field rest all organization information are automatically propagating based on the data in Position.




How to achieve above solution


1. Identifying Position field in Manage Business Configuration -> Job Information -> Position


2. Click on Details and navigate to Trigger Rules



3. Create a Basic Rule with base object as Job Information and define necessary fields to propagate automatically



4. Assign this rule in Position field details as event type Onchange.





This is a small effort which helps the SF users to reduce manual effort of entering same data in Position again to Job Information.

In order to create a business rule you can logically think and make more things achieved in same scenario itself. Your support and encouragement will motivate me to write further contents in blogs.


Thank You
