The Army Human Resources Command has further expanded an online tool that enables active duty, enlisted Soldiers to designate assignment location and assignment preferences. The Assignment Satisfaction Key (ASK) program was initially fielded to fill vacant positions in deploying units, but a redesign has transformed it into a career development tool for enlisted Soldiers in ranks E-1 through E-8 non-promotable. ASK has been updated to ensure that Soldiers who log in see only assignments for which they are currently eligible based on MOS, rank, time on station as of report date, and military education. Once submitted, requests show up in the Army's Enlisted Distribution and Assignment System (EDAS) within minutes. HRC assignment managers can then immediately begin working the requisition.
