Currency Inconsistencies

For costs that are automatically tracked and updated by the system, currency inconsistencies can occur if the cost has a different currency than the requisition currency. In such cases, the system cannot automatically update the field. The recruiter is prompted on the Cost Details tab to match the currency of the cost with the requisition currency, as identified in the warning message that displays in place of the cost details summary pie chart. Costs for which an inconsistency exists display on the Cost Details tab in red.

Note: Currency inconsistencies do not impact reporting. Cost values are still available to display in reporting, regardless of an inconsistency with the currency.

To access the Cost Details tab, click the tab name from the Requisition Snapshot page.

When inconsistencies occur, the following information can no longer display on the Cost Details tab until the inconsistencies are corrected:

  • The amount in the Costs to Date field in the cost details summary. In place of the value, "Resolve Currency" displays.
  • The amount in the Cost Sources field in the cost details summary. In place of the value, "Resolve" displays.
  • The details pie chart to the right of the cost details summary. In place of the value, a warning message appears, indicating that a currency inconsistency exists.
  • The cost value in the Amount column in the Requisition Level Costs table. In place of the value, "Resolve Currency" displays.
  • The cost sum in the Amount column in the Applicant Level Costs table. In place of the value, "Resolve Currency" displays.

Correct a Currency Inconsistency

To correct a currency inconsistency:

  1. Click the Edit icon in the Options column of the Requisition Level Costs table or the Applicant Level Costs table for the cost. This opens the Edit Requisition Level Cost pop-up or Edit Applicant Level Cost pop-up, respectively. All amount fields for which a currency inconsistency exists display in red.

  1. Select the requisition's currency from the currency drop-down, which displays to the right of the amount. Note: The currency drop-down displays both the requisition currency and the existing currency. The requisition currency must be selected in order to correct the inconsistency.
  2. Enter a comment in the Add Comment field. This is not a required field. Note: It is a recommended best practice to enter a comment to indicate that the cost was modified to correct a currency inconsistency.
  3. Click Save to save the changes. Or, click Cancel to cancel the changes.

The currency is updated in the Requisition Level Costs table or the Applicant Level Costs table. The modification history for the cost is also updated.
