When you arent current anymore, does that mean unresolvable?  Would be nice if subjects did not become unresolvable.


If you have a composite group which intersects the employee group with a manual group, then when you are an employee again, you will have the overall group again.


If you are using rules to remove you from a manual group when not in the employee group, then you *could* set a disabled date instead of remove from the manual group, then there is some buffer…. But maybe in most cases you don’t want that (when not an employee, then really remove).  Seems complicated.  Maybe using a combination could work… intersect the manual group with the employee group, so when not an employee, then not in the overall group.  And have a rule that says if not an employee, set a disabled date on the adhoc group of one week.  And if you become an employee again, then remove any disabled date.  Would be a little complex to setup, but might suit the need.

So I think it is a great idea to remove a person from some/all of their group memberships when they are no longer a current employee.


But the way HR works around here works is that when you change positions (i.e. Department) there is a time when you aren't current so Grouper will drop your memberships. But shortly thereafter you will be current again.


But your group memberships were manually added. I don't see away for Grouper to restore these memberships (which may or may not be warrented).


This is a Peoplesoft environment.


Does anyone have any idea how to address this? If that makes any sense.
