2868429 - Swap positions for two employees simultaneously - Employee Central


Is needed to swap positions between two employees at same time, however this is not possible throw UI even using Transition Period.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • Position Management


This will be not possible via UI because there is some validation regarding the Vacant/To be hired flag on the position and/or the capacity control for multiple incumbents.


Import the job history simultaneously for both target employees swapping the positions:

  1. Go to Import Employee Data
  2. Export the template for Job History
  3. Fill the csv template with both employees but swapping the position between them
  4. Import the file on Import Employee Data

Note: Make sure that Position Management -> Import -> Validate Position Assignment During Job Information Import is set to "No"
