Please add an option to retire a job - or mark it as inactive. Retired jobs should not be available in the list of jobs a new position can reference. Scenario: a customer has re-structured their jobs and titles and no longer wants to make use of the original jobs. All workers have be assigned new positions that reference the new jobs. The old jobs are referenced in previous positions of the workers and therefore cannot - and should not - be deleted. But it shouldn't be possible to reference them in any new positions. It is not enough to update the job description to 'DO NOT USE' - as many, both HR persons as well as managers requesting new positions - do not use the drop down, but simply enter the job id they remember.

The date could also be used to trigger a job evaluation (a client requirement I often come across).

The ability to retire jobs or identify as inactive should be basic functionality to support the management of structures in the system for both occupancy and the ability to report for business intelligence. This is a great idea.

This is crucial for my organisation as otherwise when creating new positions old jobs could be used. I have raised this with MS and they stated it is expected behaviour but for me - if you can have active/inactive positions why not in Jobs

That is very good idea. After few months we have many jobs which should not be used now but there is no way how to retire them.
