There is a value in the Supervisor Lvl field in the Work Location section on the Description tab of the position that is being cloned but the existing value is not being brought forward when the Initialize button is selected to clone a position.

All the values from base position should be copied to the position that is being created.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Organizational Development > Position Management > Maintain Positions/Budget > Add/Update Position Info

2. Add a New Value , Position Number – 00000000

4. it will prompt for a position number from where the date should be copied from

5. Provide he base position number which has Supervisor Lvl value populated, click OK,

6.Check the Supervisor Lvl value on the new position created, it will be blank.

The issue has the following business impact:
This issue will cause the client extra work as this field needs to be updated if it was on the existing position that is being cloned.
