Expected Behaviour


Project Management have confirmed this to be an expected behaviour. The Tool tip being displayed is the field label from the job requisition field label. The second tool tip is displayed to notify the user this is a required field.

If there is no version of the label in the logged in user’s locale, then the label is picked up from the locale, which Is same as ‘Provisioning locale’.

Once the field has been given a value then only one label is displayed.

If you feel this should be change an enhancement request can be raised in the community portal, please see KBA 2090228 - How to Submit Enhancement Requests for SAP SuccessFactors Products
