Reviewing the Mass Move
After you have chosen the Execute button on the Mass Move window, you are ready to review the results.
To review the mass move:
1. On the Mass Move window, review the contents of the Status field.
Unprocessed: Indicates that you have not yet executed the mass move.
Complete: Indicates that the mass move completed successfully without errors. For historical purposes, completed mass moves are automatically archived and cannot be modified.
Complete with Warnings: Indicates that the mass move completed successfully. Nevertheless, you should still review any warning messages the mass move generates. It is possible for a mass move to execute with Status=Complete with Warnings, yet without all assignments moving as you intended.
In Error: Indicates that the mass move did not complete successfully and that no changes took effect. You must first resolve the offending conditions before you can successfully reexecute the mass move.
Attention: If the Status field shows In Error or Complete with Warnings, the Message button appears next to the Positions button.
2. If the Message button is displayed, review the messages.
The Message window that appears includes the following fields:
Type: Type of message; Warning or Error.
Row Information: If this field displays a position name, the message applies to a source position. If this field displays the name of a person, this field applies to the assignment associated with that person.
Message: Text of the message.
Note: The Explain button on the Message window is disabled if no additional information is available.
3. If the Status field shows Complete or Complete with Warnings, navigate to the Mass Move - Assignments window and verify that the mass move changes you wanted to make did in fact take effect. Then navigate back to the Mass Move window.
