The Position Types page can be used to define position types. These are used on the instructors (see Instructors page), each instructor can have a position type selected. Position types are not used directly by UniTime, but they can be handy for reporting purposes.
Each position type has a reference, a name, and a number that is used for ordering position types. All fields are required and must be unique.
The position type reference is also used in the staff import XML file.
