Viewing Datetracked Information and History

Oracle HRMS maintains a continuous record of changes made to datetracked information. When you view a record in a datetracked window, it shows you a snapshot of the information on your effective date. The Effective Dates region on the datetracked window shows you the dates between which the snapshot is valid.

Suppose you are viewing an assignment with an effective start date of 01-JAN-1987 and no effective end date. This means that the assignment was created or last changed on 1 January 1987, and the snapshot information you are viewing is still valid. There have been no changes to the assignment since 1 January 1987, and there are no future dated changes.

To find out whether the assignment existed before 1 January 1987, you should use DateTrack History.

If there is an effective end date, you know that the record was either deleted or changed on the next day. To find out whether the record continues to exist, you can set your effective date to the day after this end date, or use DateTrack History.

Viewing the History of Datetracked Information

To see all the changes made to a datetracked record over time, use DateTrack History.

To view DateTrack History:

Note: It is possible to customize the information displayed in the Folder by modifying the DateTrack History view for the underlying table.
