2099222 - Competencies: Competency Not Updating on Live forms - Performance Management


  • You have made edits to competencies in your competency library but these are not updating your live PM forms. You are needing to have your live PM forms updated.


  • Competency content is static on PM forms. We do not support dynamic updating of competency content for live PM forms. Clients need to ensure that all competency content is updated and correct before launching forms as once the forms are live, they create a copy of the competency name and description in the form that is no longer connected in any way to your competency library.


  • Leave forms as is.
  • Or update competency library > delete old forms > relaunch forms.
  • This is not supported via Dynamic Form tool. fm-competency, fm-comment are not supported elements to update on live forms.

Note: This applies to true competency content and not behavior content. Behaviors in your competency library can be set to dymanic using  lock-behavior-content element.


Q. Can we have engineering create a custom solution to push the new competency edits to PM forms?

A. No. This is not a service we offer. Clients can leave forms as is, or relaunch new forms once competency data is corrected.
