Using the User Data Load for Cornerstone HR, organizations can user data, including effective dated records. Organizations can load multiple effective dated records for each user in a single load.
This functionality only applies to organizations that are using Cornerstone HR.
- Acme Corp. is deprecating an existing HR system that has employee data about the organization for the previous eight years.
- Jeremy is an administrator at Acme Corp., and he is working migrating data from the HR system to the Cornerstone system.
- Jeremy exports the data from his legacy HR system using the reporting tool and formats the data to be loaded into the Cornerstone system.
- With this enhancement, Jeremy can include all eight years of data for his employees in a single load, meaning that it is much easier for him to migrate data from the legacy system into Cornerstone.
Users cannot be created in the system "as of" a point in time; users can only be created "as of" Right Now. Thus, to perform a data load of effective dated information, the users must already exist in the Cornerstone system.
Backdating user data before 1901 is not supported.
