Edit a Position or Position Folder

Positions, or job functions, are attributes that label and identify users so that other people in the system have a better understanding of who they are. These Positions are created and maintained by your organization and, once created, can be assigned to any General, Capture, Offline, Setup, or Inactive users.

Positions can be grouped under Position Folders for organizational purposes. These groupings will be represented in the Positions drop-down when filtering a List of users or adding a Position to a user's profile.

Two Line Ofie"Position" is the default name of this user attribute. Your organization may have given this attribute a different name.

Who can edit a Position or Position Folder?

Anyone with the "Global User Administrator" permission can edit Positions and Position Folders.

People with other Administrator permissions may be able to access the Positions Administration page, but will not be able to make changes to it.
