2922880 - "The selected fields cannot be used for this column" message on Enhanced Manage Pending Hires - RCM

Symptom

When selecting a column in Enhanced Manage Pending Hires, the system shows a message on saving: "The selected fields cannot be used for this column. Refer to the documentation for the correct fields to use."

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access Configure Columns for Manage Pending Hires;
  2. Select the Recruiting tab;
  3. Select the columns that you would like to have on the Manage Pending Hires for Recruiting candidates;
  4. Click on Save;
  5. Warning message shows: "The selected fields cannot be used for this column. Refer to the documentation for the correct fields to use."

Cause

This message shows becase one or more fields are not being mapped on the Transformation Template on the back-end.

Resolution

By the system design, we can only select fields that are being populated to be used as a Column on Manage Pending Hires.

For the information to flow over from Recruiting Management to Manage Pending Hires, we need to have those fields mapped in the transformation template which is configured on the back-end of the applicaiton. This is a pre-requisite for the information to be sent from Recruiting Management to Employee Central/Manage Pending Hires and if the field is not mapped inside that template the field cannot be used as column.
