When should I use a Point in Time report?
Most commonly, this type of report is used during an internal/external compensation audit. By eliminating the need to sift through historical documents, this report is used to quickly pull the correct compensation information from a particular date to satisfy audit needs. Other use cases include running a report on headcount, or viewing what certain team member job titles used to be on a particular date.
While these are the typical use cases we have seen, you have the option to create a custom Point in Time report for any historical data stored in Sapling.
