Reproducing the Issue


  1. Create/Update the candidate profile details for either the First, Middle or Last name fields to include a fullstop such as the screenshot above.
  2. It doesn't matter where you position the fullstop in each field
  3. Then click save.


The full stop will be removed when you view the relevant field after.


For security reasons, the ability to add full stops in the name fields was removed in the system.
