Adding a Job Title with the Same Name

You can add any number of job titles with the same names by specifying a unique job title code to each job title, to handle the case like the example below where "Leader" and "Manager" exist in multiple departments.

Example of a Department
  • Sales Division
    • Domestic Sales Department
      • User A (Manager)
      • User B
    • International Sales Department
      • User C (Manager)
      • User D

There are two ways to enter the job title code.

  • Method 1: Manually entered by an administrator
    They can configure the descriptive code that tells what kind of job title it is (for example, "manager_domestic_sales").

  • Method 2: Automatically entered by the system (no action performed by administrators)
    You cannot specify the string to be used for the job title code since it is configured by the system.
    When you add a new job title, it is easier and recommended to let the system decide the job title code which can be changed later as needed.
