The field IDs for the "multiattachmentselection" field types are always expected to be one continuous string in any template. If you have a "multiattachmentselection" type field in your Application Template, for example, "cust_fieldattachment". It has to be configured as "custFieldattachment" without any special characters such as '_'.


Current configuration:

id="cust_fieldattachment" type="multiattachmentselection"


id="custFieldattachment" type="multiattachmentselection"


Please make the above recommended changes, if there are further errors on the career site, please open an incident with the necessary details.
