Employee Central -- Attachment fields

Reproducing the Issue

You can now add attachments to the following portlets: Biographical Information, National ID Card, and Home Address.

For all 3 portlets attachments are enabled for both employees and dependents; for National ID and Biographical Information, it can be configured separately (i.e. for dependents only, for employees only or for both also).


There should be a provision for employees to upload scanned documents like Address Proof, Marriage certificate etc. These can be attached whenever an employee needs to update some info in the ESS mode. If a workflow is associated with this change, the attached document(proof) should also be accessible to the approver in the workflow request.

We can configure the attachement type field as below :



And the field is visible as :

1. Biographical Information



2. Home Address Porltet:




The Attachment field can be configured with the right permissions so it will be visible for allowed users, in portlets which support Field Level permissions (please note for example, Biographical Information does not support Field Level currently).
