    Deleting a job title

    Karen Ianacone

      Can anyone tell me how to delete a job title? I can see how to change or add one but not how to delete. For example, we recently consolidated Nursing Assistant, Nursing Assistant 1, Nursing Assistant 2 and Nursing Assistant 3 all under one Job title- NURSE ASSISTANT.  I was able to change Nursing Assistant to NURSE ASSISTANT but can't figure out how to get rid of the other three.

       

      Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

          Everything associated with the job title must be removed (students, assignments, student groups, annotations).  Use the Job Title Utilization report listed under Reports>Tools Reports.  It will tell you what is associated. Once everything is removed the delete button under Manage Job Titles (Tools> Institution Management) will be red.

              Isn't it best practice to create an Archive Department to house the inactive people?

                  Inactive students are always searchable under Manage Students>Inactive.  You cannot delete a job title if it is associated with a student, active or inactive.  You would have to change the job title of the inactive student to the new title.  I had the unfortunate experience of needing to clean up our department list because of so many duplicates and consolidations happening over the years.  I did create an archive department for some of the inactive students in deleted departments who could not be easily relocated.
