RE: Change employee subsidiary

Is there anyway around this? Once a transaction has posted for the employee, you are not able to change the subsidiary selected on the employee record. Trying to change over a TON of employee records and a lot of them have posted transactions….

From SuiteAnswers. It sounds like if you close out any pending transactions you can change the sub.

User tried to update an Employee record to allow it access for Leads & Customers from a different Subsidiary. User then navigated to Lists > Employees > Employees and clicked Edit next to the Employee Record, but the Subsidiary field showed as fixed; the usual drop-down box was missing.

This happens when an Employee record has dependent records. To resolve this, either delete the dependent records or close any pending actions for the employee.


To confirm if there are dependent records linked to the Employee, a transaction saved search can be performed.

  1. Navigate to Lists > Search > Saved Searches > New
  2. Click Transaction
  3. Search Title: Enter title
  4. Click Criteria
  5. Filters :
    • Select Employee
    • Employee Filters : Select any of
    • Employee List : Highlight Employee Name/s
    • Click Set
  6. Click Save & Run
