This is a new enhancement. Only configuration and permissions are required.

  1. Time in Company
  2. Time in Location
  3. Time in Department
  4. Time in Pay Scale Level 
  5. Time in Job

To make these fields visible on the UI you can perform the steps via Data Model update or via Manage Business Configuration.

1) Configure the fields

  • Via Data Model update
    1. Add the field in Job Information of Succession Data Model
    2. Import Data Model 
  • Via BCUI
    1. Admin Center->Manage Business Configuration
    2. Access Job Information Portlet 
    3. Add the standard field for the time you want to display 
    4. Add the standard field for Entry Date 


2) Set the permissions for these fields

  1. Admin Center->Manage Permission Roles
  2. Select the wanted role
  3. Click on Permission
  4. Under "Employee Central Effective Dated Entities" Tab set the permission of the field  “View Current” and “View History”

3) Configure the job

  1. Access "Manage Scheduled Jobs" in provisioning
  2. Create new job with the name: "Initialize additional entry date fields in job info" 
  3. Start this job in Provisioning

After this process the fields should be available in the UI and show the correct value.

NOTE: Make sure for Time in Job, job-code field needs to be filled for the value to populate in the instance.
