Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to system
  2. Navigate to Admin Center > Tools > Manage Talent Pool Field Settings
  3. Select multiple boxes to include the fields > Save
  4. Receive error


Expected behavior


The system is designed to allow a maximum of 16 fields to be selected for the talent pool. This total also includes the default fields already selected. To resolve the issue, fields will need to be removed to bring the total down to 16 fields total.

If you think the possibility to have more fields would be useful for your business, please share your ideas via Customer Influence Portal for our Product Management team to review. Once you have submitted your idea, other customers and partners can vote for it and your votes help us to prioritize ideas that we will consider for upcoming product releases.
