Retaining Departmental Permissions for a Period After an Employee Transfers Departments

Hi everyone,

I’m looking into the functionalities of our permission management system and I have a specific scenario I need help with. When an employee transfers to a different department, is there a feature available that allows them to retain their permissions from the previous department for a set period of time?

In particular, I’m interested in understanding if there is a way to ensure that permissions automatically assigned based on the employee’s previous department role can be extended for 30 days post-transfer, before they fully transition to the permissions set of the new department.

This feature would be incredibly beneficial for ensuring a smooth transition for employees who are moving between departments and may need continued access to certain resources or systems from their previous roles.

Does anyone have experience with setting up a workflow or permissions structure like this within their organization’s IT or HR systems? Any insights or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Jeongon,
I had a similar requirement from a customer and I used the following workflow design. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the workflow anymore but maybe the solution design helps you to implement the workflow:
