Creating and Defining Events
Once you have created a rank, you can edit the rank to add the events that make up the timeline for the rank.
On the Edit Rank page, scroll down to Events, and click Add Event.
This section will not apply until the integration with RPT is launched later in 2021. This will only appear for institutions who are also RPT clients.
You will first enter a year, for example, if this event occurs during the first year, enter '1' in the 'Year' field. You will then select the month during the indicated year when this event takes place at the institution, (e.g Year 1 in May, Year 5 in July).
How do I indicate months and years in the template Rank Events data model?
The year must be the year the events takes place and the event month is between 1 and 12. For an event occurring in the first year of August the event year would be 1 and the event month would be 8.
Can a different month be used with the same year for an event?
Yes. In fact, you cannot have an event with the same year and month within the same Professional Journey.
What makes an event "current" and green? What is the timeframe for "current"?
A user needs to manually start the event in order for it to be current. At this time, Lifecycle Management does not auto-start events.
Can we load past events with whatever dates that we want?
No. When loading a past event the appointment start date should align with the hire date and start date of the current appointments.
General Best Practices for Rank Events
- Each rank is "independent of others"
- When putting events in for a rank, all the events should mark the time in that particular rank.
- Each rank should start with an Appointment event.
When should you start an Event in Lifecycle Management?
For a review, it's recommended that you start the event at the start of the review period. This date will default to the first of the month.
