3244993 - Unable to see a background element on the candidate profile - Recruiting Management


Background Elements are not visible to the external candidates, so they cannot edit or add a background element on their candidate profiles.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


There is no permission to read or write on the background element on field-permissions section of the candidate profile template.


As explained on the SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management implementation guide, Candidate Profile Element: Field Permissions, when the template has a field-permissions section on the template configured it is required to provide permission for each field. If not granted, the field will not display as the system will understand it is not meant for the candidates to read or write on it.
