3099174 - How to allow users to change a Candidate's participation in SMS notifications - Recruiting Management


A user wishes to change the Candidate's preference to opt in or out of SMS messaging


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management 

Reproducing the Issue

As a user you wish to go to the following check box:

  1. Go to Recruiting
  2. Go to Candidates
  3. Search any candidate and go to their profile
  4. You wish to see the following checkbox: Send me SMS Notification


To allow a user to be able to Enable/Disable SMS notification it is required that a Dynamic Group be created and the user added to it.

After creating the Dynamic Group you will need to give write permissions to the group for the following fields:

  • cellPhone
  • phoneCountryCode
  • optInCellNumber

An example of the configuration in the XML Template(All Countries, Both Internal & External Candidates):

<field-permission type="write">
  <role-name group-name="Edit Candidate Profile Group - DO NOT CHANGE NAME"><![CDATA[Dynamic Group]]></role-name>
  <field refid="cellPhone"/>
  <field refid="phoneCountryCode"/>
  <field refid="optInCellNumber"/>
