Reproducing the Issue

[Internal, requires access to Provisioning. If no access to provisioning, please engage with Implementation Partner or Product Support]


"True Position Hierarchy" needs to be enabled in Provisioning.

Career Worksheet XML code:

Under the code </obj-plan-due> Add this script: on for hide, off for show. If not defined in XML, default value is "off".

<switch for="hide-position-count" value="on" />


  • Position count only works for Legacy Position Nomination Method (where data source is: Admin Center > Succession > Position management: Export Positions). Any vacant/open/TBH Position stored in MDF Position is not counted in this area, as Career Worksheet does not support MDF.
  • Score/Count is determined for number vacant/TBH Positions (no incumbent) for the mapped job role (+1 for every TBH Position).
