How to Capture the Actual Start Date of an Address Using a Flexfield for Me/Contact Info Page in HCM Cloud (Doc ID 2849808.1)

Last updated on MARCH 05, 2022

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is a requirement to capture the actual start date of an address when entering address info from:

Me/Contact Info/Add address

Although there is a field on this page by default called "Start Date",  this date cannot precede the hire date of the employee.  Therefore this particular requirement is to track the actual start date when the employee first used a particular address.

For example an employee who has been Employed for 2 years, would only be able to add the start date of their home address as the start date of their Employment.

However, they might actually have resided at that address for 10 years.  The requirement is to use a flexfield to store this date.
