Create a job assignment


Article summary

You can create a new job assignment to show a user's current job and/or to associate a manager with them.

To create a job assignment, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Quick-access menu > Users.
  2. Click the name of the user whose job assignments you wish to edit.
  3. Under the Job assignments section, click the Add job assignment link.
  4. Enter the relevant job assignment details.
  5. Click Add job assignment to save the assignment.

Repeat as required to create any other job assignments held by the user.

When creating a job assignment you can use the HR import checkbox to enable HR import for that assignment.

If this setting is enabled for the job assignment then the job assignment can be updated via HR import. It can be a time-consuming process to identify and update each assignment individually, so if you want HR import to update all assignments you should make sure this setting is enabled when each assignment is created.
