Talent Acquisition - Open Job Requisitions
We are wondering how others are handling their open job reqs when changes to the positions have been made. If a recruiter opens a job requisition and it is still open and HRIS makes a change to the positions such as salary plan data, location, etc. when they hire one of the candidates, it hires them with the data that was effective when the job req was completed. It is not updating their work assignment when hired with the new position data. Currently the recruiters will close the req and open a new one and move the candidates if they know something has changed. Looking to see how others are handling these circumstances as sometimes it is not caught until after the fact.

FSM/CloudSuite Close Process Documentation
We are implementing FSM/CloudSuite/v11 (pick a name) from S3/Lawson/v10. We've been given some basic close process documentation, but the documentation was not as thorough as we'd like. We are looking to supplement the documentation; does anyone have anything they could share? Looking mainly for AP, GL, AM & Recurring journals, but will take whatever anyone is willing to share. Thanks so much!
