2504412 - Formal Name Field Not Visible During New Hire Wizard


Formal Name field not visible during New Hire Wizard.


Reproducing the Issue

Enable Formal Name field in Manage Business Configuration.

Set field to visibile.

Ensure no rules are hiding field.


Formal Name field is not displayed in the New Hire Wizard on both PP3 and V2.

During new hire, system will automatically format the formal-name based on configuration at Legal entity (or default format).

It is intended to only make this field available in ESS and not in New hire as it is not editable field for the user.




This is not a bug. The behaviour is documented in the Name Formatting Implementation guide and the system is working as designed.

Development are implementing a change to this but the exact release version has yet to be confirmed.
