A Single Profile Photo for an Employee with Multiple Employments

Previously, you can add a different profile photo for each employment of an employee with multiple employments. Now, profile photos are stored based on persons. A single profile photo is shared by all the employments of the employee.

With required permissions, you can still access existing profile photos of an employee with multiple employments. But if you make a change to a profile photo related to any employment of this employee in the following scenarios, the change applies to all the employments:
  • Add, change, or delete a profile photo on the People Profile page.

  • Import profile photos.

  • Use Photo API entity to add, change, or delete profile photos.

This change helps ensure each employee has a unique profile photo and simplifies photo management for employees with multiple employments.
