3215703 - Auto Select Child Picklist Value Behavior After H1 2022 - Recruiting Management


After the H1 2022 release, if you have a parent child picklist relationship and the child picklist has only one value for the respective parent value, this value will be automatically selected. Before, if you had the same scenario, the child picklist value would not be automatically selected, instead the "No Selection" option would remain.

This is a new behavior based on the Picklist improvements made on the H1 2022, such as the Typeahead feature.


  • This behavior only applies to Candidates, both Internal and External Profiles;
  • As mentioned, this behavior only occurs when the child picklist has a single value for the respective parent value.
