Resolution

The type attribute defines the data that the system will accept in the field. It consists of the following options:

  • text: a single line of alphanumeric text with a 100-character limit (character limit and display are non-configurable). Each text field can store one value per locale, allowing the user to toggle between languages to enter data in various locales
  • textarea: multiple lines of alphanumeric text with a 256-character limit, displayed as a 100-character-wide box (character limit and display are non-configurable.) Each textarea field can store one value per locale, allowing the user to toggle between languages to enter data in various locales
  • date: a date manually entered by user or selected from calendar pull-down. Displays mmddyyy or ddmmyyyy according to user's chosen language pack
  • percent: a percent value with one decimal
  • bool: true or false (shown as a check box); should not be made required because if required, always needs to be checked
  • enum: an enumerated type (shown as a pull-down list) where values are defined in the XML
  • number: a number value with two decimal places, formatted by locale **
  • currency: a currency value, where currency symbol is determined by the field id "currency"
  • picklist: field options come from a picklist defined in admin (shown as a pull down list)
  • derived: a pull-down or "find value" field (depending on length of list) where values are automatically determined from another area of the system
  • instruction: a non-editable field that stretches left-to-right across the screen, used to display messages to users. Cannot be made reportable or writable or an error will result.
  • multiattachment: a field that can have multiple documents uploaded and attached to it.
  • richText: alphanumeric lines with about a 32,000 character limit, which includes hidden characters used to define html formatting (character limit and display are non-configurable.) Each richText field can store one value per locale, allowing the user to toggle between languages to enter data in various locales
  • jobCode: field that can have data autopopulated from the Job Classification Foundation Object when a requisition is created via Browse Families and Roles. 
  • questions: special field type that can only be defined once per requisition template and only on the “questions” field id Places the pre-screen questions section onto the requisition. 
  • competencies: special field type that can only be defined once per requisition template and only on the “competencies” field id. Place the competencies section onto the requisition. 
  • operator: special field type that can only be defined on a particular pre-defined list of field ids.
  • operatorTeam: special field type that can only be defined on a particular pre-defined list of field ids.

**Even if the standard XML language has tags such format (<format>##</format>), this is not supported by the system. There is no available feature or implementation to define number formats.
