Manage Positions

How to create and manage positions in Holocentric Connect

Positions are like Job Titles. They are more specific to an individual than a role. Positions can have responsibilities (Accountable, Approver, Owner, Reviewer) to items within Connect, which drives change management.

  1. Create a new position
  2. Edit position
  3. Approve and publish a position
