2825490 - Is it Possible to Configure a Background Element as Text-Area Field Type - Recruiting Management


Is it possible to configure an element from the candidate profile background information as text-area field type?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management - All Versions

  • Candidate Profile


Currently, in the way the system is designed, the elements from the candidate background information can't be configured as text-area type. Alphanumeric fields will only behave as text fields.

Also, the "Text-Area="True"" attribute will only work for Employee Profile fields.

If the existing functionality does not fit your business configuration, please provide the feedback to the Product Management team to have this functionality analyzed and changed within future development cycles. For detailed steps on how to raise an enhancement request please follow the article 2090228 on "How to submit an enhancement request".
