Titles 

Quick Links


Titles are used to group similar positions which are typically related to the job function across an organization. Positions that are related by a title generally perform similar functions and management responsibilities within an organization, due to which, companies often use a Title as a way to identify and search for positions.

When used in conjunction with the SAP Sales Cloud Commissions product, you can use Titles to link related Positions for the purpose of assigning compensation plans. The Title details consist of a name, which is typically an abbreviation or acronym. You can also include a description with additional information about the Title, effective start, and end dates, and associate the Title with a business unit.

Title Versions


Territory and Quota enables you to create multiple versions of a record so you can manage various changes over time. Each version can contain distinct information that is valid for the record at different points in time.

Depending on the view date you select within the application, the appropriate record version is displayed. Effective dates indicate when a record becomes available in the application and the period of time for which the version is valid or effective. Effective dates appear at the bottom of the Details view on a record.

Versioning is available for the following records:
  • Accounts
  • Account Classifier Hierarchies
  • Participants
  • Positions
  • Products
  • Territory Programs
  • Titles
The Manage Versions feature enables you to switch between different versions so you can view or change information about the record over time. To view, add, delete, or edit a version, click More: Mange Versions.

Click Create to create a new version. If you create a version that overlaps all or part of an existing version or versions, or if you remove a middle version, the remaining versions are automatically adjusted to support a continuous representation of the object over time.

Click Delete to remove the selected version.
