Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting → Make sure that Location column is visible in the dashboard for job requisitions listings.
  2. For some users (or for all the users associated with a particular role for ex: Recruiter) Location value is not visible and for some users (with a different role) Location value is visible.


The role associated with the user might not be having Location foundation object view permission.


You have to provide the following permission to the respective role of the user which will resolve the issue.

Go to Manage Permission Roles → Select the role →  Manage Foundation Object Types → Location → give view permission.
