Storing Historical Data for Employee Type and Departments

Being able to store changes to Employee Type and Departments like we can with other User fields would be EXTREMELY helpful to our company. Currently, if an employee moves from one department to another, once we make that change, any reports that we pull look like the employee has been in the new department since they started. It would help us greatly if when we could put their initial department in, then if they were to change, update that to the new department with an effective date. This would be the same as the Supervisor field or the Hourly Payroll field. Since those fields can track historical data, shouldn't it be simple to add that feature to other fields?

Hi Rachel,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

We do realise the importance of the feature and would be glad to look through this. In the mean time I can suggest a use of User Defined Fields. 

Go to Administration 
Click on User settings
Create a User Defined Field called Old Employee Type/Old Department Name

This can be filled when you are changing these field values in the user profile and can also be reported on.

I have forwarded this concern to my product management team and will keep the thread updated in case of any progress.

Thank you! That still doesn't allow it to show me a date of when they changed, does it?

Hi Rachel,

I may not be presenting the best way out to you, however, you can create User defined field of Date type named Department change Date or Employee Type Change date and fill them as and when the change is done.

Hi Rachel,

We don't currently have plans to work on this. We will reconsider in the future. 

Thanks, Karen
