Repurposing a Department to ChartField Definitions

Caution:  Departments must have a start date of 1/1/19 that is inactive,  and an active date of 7/1/xx. If the current date is used, various trees and reports may not contain the departments as they will be outside of its criteria’s scope.

If the department was used in prior years but is now being repurposed as a new department, make sure the beginning date is 1/01/1901 and inactivated through the new date.
