Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access the candidate's New Hire Data Review
  2. When clicking on Submit, regardless of which part of the step
  3. The error message "[Field name] has an obsolete picklist value." appears


This is happening due to the picklist have a same external code for an Active and an Inactive picklist option. The system is considering the inactive ones over active ones.


This issue requires a Code-fix and the Engineering Team is working on it, and we will be updating this once and ETA is confirmed


As a workaround the user that is performing the NHDR step, can re-select the value on the field and it will be possible to proceed with the next steps.
