User info element in manage business configuration

 User info element in bcui.png


 Fields explained - 

  1. Type - varchar | float | integer | boolean | date | blob
  2. Picklist - Varchar and integer are supported. 
  3. Maximum length - 255
  4. Reportable - After 2105 release, All the User Info fields are now automatically available for reporting using Stories in People Analytics. Previously we had a maximum of 30 reportable fields but after 2105 release there is no limit.
  5. Element permission -  When Role Based permission is turned on, this is non - functional. 

Note: The Reportable attribute is still valid for Table reports and must be set to True in order to be visible. However, for Advanced Reporting some fields will be available regardless the reportable attribute, and some will be missing. This is an expected behavior since Advanced Reporting is mainly focused on Employee Central and MDF schemas.
