Job Import

Important:

This topic describes a feature that is currently available only in some customer accounts. For information about the availability of this feature for your account, please contact your NetSuite account manager.

The job record is available when the Job Management feature is enabled on the Setup > Company > Setup Tasks > Enable Features.

In the user interface, you can access the job record at Setup > HR Information System > Jobs. For information about working with this record in the user interface, see Managing Jobs.

To import job records, set the Import Type to Employee and the Record Type to Job in the first step of the Import Assistant.

The job import does not contain any sublist fields.

For details about fields that can be mapped in the job record, see the SOAP Schema Browser’s HCM job reference page. You can use the field definitions here as a basis for creating your own CSV import template file. For information about working with the SOAP Schema Browser, see SOAP Schema Browser.

After the import is complete, you can assign employees to the newly created or updated jobs. For more information, see Assigning Employees to Jobs.
