When using Jobs and Posts, a Job Title is a generic term and is used to group together Post Titles. A Post Title is attached to an employee in Employment RecordsCintra iQ allows you to attach various Posts to Jobs.


A Job Title could be Receptionist and Post Titles could be Receptionist Newcastle, Receptionist Durham and Receptionist Sunderland etc. All three Post Titles would be attached to the Job Title: Receptionist. Depending on your company setup you can have multiple employees in one post or you could have one post per employee.


If you are using Organisation Charts in Cintra iQ, a Post Title would be attached to an organisation unit within the Organisation Chart.

If you only have one employee per post and that employee leaves the company the post would show as a vacant post in the Organisation Chart.

If you have several employees in one post and one person leaves, it would not show in the organisation chart that the post is vacant as you would still have other employees in that post. Consideration needs to be given to this when creating posts.

Depending on your setup, you can have multiple employees in one post or you could have one post per employee. For more information about the fields, see About the Post Record.
