2845905 - How to add the Comments section to the Candidate Profile - Recruiting Management


  • How to add the Comments section/portlet to the Candidate Profile?
  • Can recruiters add comments to the candidates' Candidate Profile?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


It is possible to add the Comments portlet to the Candidate Profile. To do that, you need to add the Standard Field comments to the candidate profile template.

To do that, you have two options:

  • Contact your partner to update the information in the XML template, and upload it back to Provisioning;
  • Or, add the new field to the template and provide the proper permissions via Manage Templates feature.

Once you add the fieldId="comments" to the template, the portlet Comments will become visible to recruiting users. Even if you don't define any permissions to this field, it won't be available to candidates and it will be visible for Recruiting users. However, it is strongly recommended to provide the permissions using Dynamic Groups. For more information on this comments field permissions, please, check the following KBA 2815893 - Comments field permissions candidate profile - Recruiting Management.
