Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Recruiting -> Job Requisitions.
  2. Click on Display Options.
  3. Notice that there are duplicate options for Department, Division, and Location.


The options correspond to the following Job Requisition fields. Department, Division, and Location have two standard field IDs. One is of enum type, and the other is of object type.

Enum type:

  • "department"
  • "division"
  • "location"

Object type:

  • "department_obj"
  • "division_obj"
  • "location_obj"


To hide the Department, Division, and Location fields of enum type, follow these steps:
  1. Go to Manage Recruiting Settings.
  2. Tick the option "Disable Department, Division, and Location filter options on Job Requisition Tab".

To change the labels of those display options, use the 'Manage Languages' tool to upload custom translations using the following message keys. Note: this will also change the display column names on the Job Requisition Summary page.

Enum type:

  • RECRUITING_JRS_departmentCol
  • RECRUITING_JRS_divisionCol
  • RECRUITING_JRS_locationCol

Object type:

  • RECRUITING_JRS_departmentObjCol
  • RECRUITING_JRS_divisionObjCol
  • RECRUITING_JRS_locationObjCol
