    How can we modify the start month of a hiring requisition?
    Content:

    A very common use case for our FP&A team is to postpone the start month of requisitions, entered in the previous forecast following hiring delays.

    I read the doc. about Updating Hiring Requisitions but the functionality seems to apply to modifying the end month (extend or reduce the calendar), which is only applicable to temps anyway.

    Did I miss anything? If not, any plan to add this functionality in the future?

    Thanks,

      Workforce planning will add this enhancement in future. This isn't allowed now and you may have to customize our Groovy Template for this one.

      As a workaround you should be able to use the Employee Details screen and you can update the FTE/Headcount members to null. This should stop any calculations for that month effectively moving the start month. While not ideal it is a work around if someone isn't willing to delete the req and then recreating it.

        Hi Matt,

        Thanks for the suggestion. We ended up building a customization for now, as we also needed to provide the functionality to update other properties.

      Agree - hope to see this in the near future. We would also like to have the ability to postpone start dates as well.
