New Position Management 

A preview of our new position management design and functionality 

  • Flexible
  • Intuitive
  • Heaps easier!

In the webinar below you'll see the new position management functionality including:

  • The new employment date capture
  • Conflict checks when changing adding position
  • Streamlined adding a position to an employee process with
    • Position start and end dates
    • New flow includes work pattern and Salaried option (previously called autopay)
    • Easier set up of entitlements



Tips for those transitioning to the new position management including:

  • When changing positions now, you can simply add the new position (do not delete existing positions).
  • Checking the employment date, foundU has pre-filled this but you'll need to ensure that it accurately reflects your employee records.
  • Position start dates.
    • For casuals these will display as 'ongoing', for those that require start and end dates these will need to be edited.
    • For full time/ part time these will flow through based on your existing data.
  • When switching from full time to salaried, use add position (this is considered a new position).


Frequently asked questions (FAQ's):

Can you have multiple "active" positions for the one casual at the same time?

Yes you can, simply add in the positions and start dates that you'd like.

In the scenario where you set up a junior staff member e.g. current position at 16, next position at 17 (from their birthday) etc, do you receive a notification when the position change occurs?

Updated! Now yes you can- you'll find the template which can be enabled in the full menu> Communication> Communication content a template called Notification sent to admin users (manager) when employee effect date position triggers. 

When changing an employee from full-time to casual and it goes to cash out leave, does it automatically go to the next pay period? 

It will automatically cash out in the last payslip before you transition from permanent to casual as an example. This is because accruals continue over this period until paid out.

Can the 'Add New Entitlement' be turned on/off for users?

Yes you can. In leave rules you can adjust this setting.

If you would like to manually select entitlements every time you can select this setting in leave rules. The setting is called 'applying entitlement to employees settings'.

There is a toggle for new employees and a toggle for existing employees.
