Action Effective Date 
Element Description 
The action effective date is the date the action becomes effective. For example, if a person’s hire date is effective 8/16, then the action effective date is 8/16, even if the row was entered on 9/1. This differs from the action date which only notes when the row was entered into PeopleSoft.
