  •  We would like to restrict the display of certain document types.
  • Can we hide/change the visibility of Document type field in Work Permit info?

This is not possible. The only restriction / filtering is via the selection of the country in the country field.

Standard Field ID Field Label Data Type Max. Length Default Visibility Is Required? How To Use This Field:
Yes document-type Document Type STRING 256 Both No

The type of the document for which the ID needs to be captured is given in this field.

The list of values comes from the predefined cascading picklist permitdoctype, which is filtered based on the country selected in the country field.


If you need this feature, please raise an enhancement request via this KBA.
