In People Profile enabled instance, the field order of Job information fields in Edit mode is different than what is configured in the admin tool "Configure People Profile".


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  • Login to a People Profile enabled instance. (1611 or prior release)
  • Search for Employee.
  • Take action - Change job and compensation information.
  • Click "show 40 more fields".
  • For example: Change Employee Group, you'll see that the Employee Subgroup is not easily visible and you need scroll way down to find the field.
  • When we view the employee job information the fields are together.  In the People Profile configuration they are together as well.


A new option to configure field in Edit mode has been provided under Configure People Profile admin tool with 1702 release.

Click on the Job Information Block and on right hand side you can see "You can configure fields of the Edit Dialog here." link. Click on it.

It will show job info portlet fields (for all countries from the succession data model). You can move and rearrange all the fields. The first set of fields are for the edit dialog/ edit mode.

When you scroll to the bottom the set of fields will repeat those fields are for the UI non-edit mode display order.

When you select a country on top it displays country/region-specific job information fields (if any).
