  • This is currently a product limitation.


Permanent Solution:

  • An enhancement for the same would be planned for future releases


  • To ensure that attachment fields for custom MDF objects are configured on the New Hire Template, the Attachment Field Configuration object needs to be created with the following details:
    Object Type: Custom MDF object
    Attachment Field: Attachment field from the object
    Entity ID: externalCode (corresponds to the User type field in the custom MDF object)

  • The documents uploaded via custom objects associated with the hire template can be accessed via the Dashboard Details Action Menu -> New Hire Data Page (the object must be used in the template for the page).
  • These attachments are not visible with the other generated documents under "Onboarding Documents"
