In development branch of iHRIS we have introduced a new administrative feature that allows you to remap data fields. This functionality is only available to a user with the administrator's role. This will be available in the next release of iHRIS.

The remapping data feature is part of a new "auto list" functionality that has not been fully integrated into the iHRIS software. This integration will come with the 4.2 release. In the meantime the functionality is still available.

Accessing the Auto List

If you are accessing your site at for example


then you can access the "auto list" page at


Remapping A Field

In this example, we will suppose that we have two jobs "Registered Nurse" and "General Nurse" that have been used but they are really the same thing and we want to use "Registered Nurse" instead of "General Nurse." What we will want to do is to "remap" every form field that points to "General Nurse" to use "Registered Nurse" instead.

Selecting the Job form

Once you have accessed the auto list page, you want to go to the job form.

Once we have selected the job form, we want to select the "General Nurse" job to remap.

Performing the data remap

Once you have selected the new value for the mapped fields, you will be returned to the overview of the "General Nurse."   Here you will see a link that will allow you to map any forms that link to "General Nurse".   In this case it says "Remap field position in job (1 matches)"  meaning that there is one poisition linking to the General Nurse job that should be remapped to "Registered Nurse"
