Edge Import - Employee Load Enhancements

This enhancement provides new capabilities for GUID-based loads and support for Applicant to Employee conversion. This is essential for customers waiting to migrate from Data Load Wizard (DLW) where these features are currently supported.

For all customers using Edge Import, the following capabilities are now available:

  • Create employees using GUID-based loads
  • Include Employee Relationship fields in GUID-based loads
  • New value input options for Eligible for Rehire fields

For Recruiting customers using Edge Import, the following capability is now included:

  • Convert Applicant to Employee

Important: The ability to convert applicants using Edge Import may require a change in the procedures a customer is currently following in Data Load Wizard. We highly recommend testing your current files in your Stage or Pilot environment to validate your current process and understand how your files will be loaded using the Edge Import Employee load prior to migrating from Data Load Wizard to Edge Import.

Considerations

  • The Applicant to Employee conversion option is only available if the Recruiting module is enabled.

Implementation

  • GUID-based loads are enabled by default for all existing Edge Import customers.
  • There are two new values, “eligible” and “ineligible,” which are now supported for the Eligible for Rehire field. This is enabled by default for all Edge Import customers.
  • The Applicant to Employee conversion feature is enabled by default for existing Edge Import customers that also use Cornerstone Recruiting.
  • The Template Guides in Edge Import are updated to reflect this enhancement.
