Reproducing the Issue

The label configuration in the Performance Form XML template is as follows:

            <section-manager-comments-label><![CDATA[Test for Label changing]]></section-manager-comments-label>

            <section-subject-comments-label><![CDATA[Test for Label changing]]></section-subject-comments-label>

However, the label still showed the standard system label:



  • In the Custom Section XML there is an attribute called split-cmt which controls the display of subject and manager's comments side by side.
  • If this is set to "false", then the standard system labels will still display:

            <fm-sect index="3" mgt-only="false" split-cmt="false" cmt-opt="0">

            <fm-sect-name><![CDATA[Testing Business Behavior]]></fm-sect-name>


  • The split-cmt attribute should be set to "true" instead of "False":

            <fm-sect index="3" mgt-only="false" split-cmt="true" cmt-opt="0">

            <fm-sect-name><![CDATA[Testing Business Behavior]]></fm-sect-name>

  • The change to the labels will display as configured:
