Multiple persons assigned to a single position

Hello All,

While working on a support query on client's system I found that they have multiple persons attached to a single position (for eg. Position = Sales Manager, Persons attached = 3, not the best practice).

Now there has been a change in the cost centers of all three employees. To be able to change cost centers the employees need to be separated i.e. assigned to separate positions.What I would like to know is how I should go about separating employees so that each person is assigned to a separate position? I have created 2 more similar positions in PPOME for this purpose. Should I drag and drop persons from one position to another or what other way is there to achieve this? Please note that there is no change in position/department. Just moving persons to separate positions.

Thanks!

    Create 3 new Positions, each with it's own Cost Center, and then create a "Reassignment Action" through pa40 to change the Position associated with each of the 3 employees.

    Assigning more than one employee to a single position is sometimes done for "casual" positions, but it should never be done with "regular" positions.

    We tell our users that when they create a Position, they should never change it's relation to an Org.Unit, it's relation to a CostCenter, it's FullTimeEquivalency (%), or any other characteristic. Instead, delimit the current Position and create a new one.

    As for assigning more than one Position to a single Employee (PERNR), that is something that we sometimes see, but our users don't use PPOME.

    Just curious....are those employees assigned different % on that position? That DOES happen. (ex. I may be in my normal position 80% of the time and then on another....like a project role or sales....for 20%). So just check that also when you do nail down your "fix" for this.
