2473740 - Job Application Comments are not displaying in Candidate Workbench - Recruiting Management


I have configured comments to appear in the candidate summary table, and I can add the comments field through Display Options, but the values are not being displayed.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the job application template XML I have configured comments to appear in the candidate summary table.

  2. I have added the field to Display Options in Candidate Workbench/Candidate Summary
  3. Add a comment to the candidate application

  4. Go back to Candidate Workbench
  5. See that the Comments column is empty

Currently, the comment field is not supported on the candidate summary page. This field can capture multiple comments and therefore, it would not be possible to display all of them on the candidate summary page.
