The rating values of Talent Flags depend on the order of the OptionId assigned to the picklist.


If you're using Legacy Picklists:

Check the optionID and picklist values for the Talent Flags in your instance:

  1. Go to Admin Center > Picklists Management.
  2. Select Export all picklist(s) and click Submit.
  3. Open the csv file/
  4. Filter the picklistId and search for the talent flags - riskOfLoss, impactOfLoss or reasonForLeaving

You can switch the labels for the OptionID so that the rating values will show in correct order based on the OptionId order. DO NOT CHANGE any OptionID as this ID is an internal reference. Please NOTE: In case there are historical data for these talent flags, please reconsider changing the labels as this could affect your data. You may refer to this article for reference on how to modify and import the picklist 2088658 - Picklists: Working with Legacy Picklists (Importing, Editing and Creating).
