When worker's position is changed, worker's 'Actual Job Title' field doesn't change according to new position's 'Actual Job Title'.
Has anyone faced this issue?
There are no tags related to a version of Microsoft Dynamics AX on this question. Which version of AX are you using?
It's AX 2012 R3.
The worker title is stored in a table called HcmWorkerTitle. It's directly linked to the worker and doesn't reference the position assignments at all, so what you're seeing is expected behaviour. In reporting I tend to extract the title from the worker's primary position instead.
Not sure if that's the sort of answer you were after but I hope it helps,
My client wants them to be the same but Standard AX doesn't treat it that way. So probably I need to disable editing of job title at worker level and whenever position's job title changes, I need to update worker's job title at the same time.
You could assign a person to multiple positions, so the positions has a title, but the worker can have a different. Updating a job shoulf probably prompt you with the option of updating the person. It doesn't do that.
You could train your customer to check the position for work title and use that in relation to reports anf such.
A job is a collection of tasks and responsibilities that are required of a person who performs a job.
A position is an individual instance of a job.
Only one worker at a time can occupy a position but a worker can be assigned to multiple positions e.g. two part time jobs.
Employee is a subtype of worker - all employees are workers but not all workers are employees (some of them are contractors).
Most of the information that you can maintain about a worker is related to the 'employee' not to the job title or position.
