3098892 - Type ahead option for searching is missing in Multiselect fields (object/picklist)

Symptom

When multiselect="true" for an object/picklist field, we are not able to use the type ahead option and search for a particular value.

Also, typing in alphabets does not jump to the respective values with the same starting alphabet but goes step wise.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Environment

SAP Successfactors Recruiting Management

Reproducing the Issue

Access a job requisition, check for any fields (object/picklist) where the multiselect is enabled. (multiselect="true")

Dropdown the field and you can see there is no option for type ahead. 


Whereas fields where the multiselect="false"  there is an option to type in and then select the desired value.

Resolution

Our Product Management team has confirmed that this is the expected behavior of the object/picklist fields where multiselect is enabled (multiselect="true")


To change this behavior in a future version of the system, please submit an enhancement request by following the instructions available in the article linked to this incident: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2090228
