Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Templates admin tool and choose Performance form templates
  2. Edit or create new template
  3. Add summary section
  4. Go to field permissions of summary section
  5. --> Add field permission with weighted average field 


This is a known issue. The attribute "weighted-average" was created for a field on the popup of the overall score, which used to show the "weighted average" of this section in the entire form. The feature will be deprecated since it will never be calculated, displayed, or used in the PM form.


    The fix for this issue is planned to be deployed on 2H 2024 release (b2411).

    For release timelines, please review SAP SuccessFactors Product Release & Road Map Information.

    NOTE: The attribute "weighted-average" will be changed to show as "Select a Field". The form template XML will remain unchanged. Users can still edit, save, and create new forms from existing form templates.


    No workaround is available.
