Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login >
  2. Navigate to a Job Requisition where you have the Job Requisition standard field ID 'interviewGuide' configured >
  3. Navigate to the Job Requisition Details page >
  4. Scroll down to the field >
  5. Add an attachment that contains no spaces and has a lengthy file name such as Interview_Guide_Document_For_Internal_And_External_Candidates.docx.
  6. Notice once you add the file the bin icon that acts as a delete button moves off screen and you cannot access it.


Our engineering team are currently looking into this topic and are investigating the issue to work towards a resolution on it.


As a workaround please ensure you use a naming convention that contains spaces in your files so this issue does not occur.

i.e. do not name your file Interview_Guide_Document_For_Internal_And_External_Candidates.docx. Instead please name your file 'Interview Guide Document For Internal And External Candidates.docx'
