                          : Talent Search v2

Reproducing the Issue

1: Go to Talent Search v2

2: Under Advanced Information, select Education portlet and you would see 'Add Education' link to add this portlet again, as below:


3: Select another portlet, say Functional Role-> Add link doen't show for this portlet, as below:





Currently, Add portlet link shows only for 2 background portlets; Language & Education portlets. This link helps to define multiple criteria for one type of background portlet i.e. you can select more precise criteria.

I would suggest clients to open an enhancement request on community portal to enable Add portlet link for other background portlets, you may check KBA-2344294 on 'How to submit enhancement request'
