2259837 - Manage Data - Reloadable fields cannot be updated as blank after form creation - Compensation


Customer reports that he/she is unable to update reloadable fields as blank after launching form.


SuccessFactors Compensation Management

Reproducing the Issue

Customer launches a form with a certain value for a reloadable field - e.g. Salary


He/she reimports the UDF with Salary field as blank


However, the field in the form is not updated



Currently this is the expected behavior. When trying to update a field as blank after the forms creation, this field will not be updated. Only the below update process is acceptable;

  • Existing value on the form to be updated to a New value
  • No value on the form to be updated to a New value

There is already an Enhancement Request created with our Engineering Team, but there is no specific turn around time as to when and if this enhancement request will be completed and release.

You can create an entry in our influence page > "Submit your idea" for an additional impact in considering to push the said enhancement request.


Customer has 2 options to update the desired field as blank:

  1. Delete the employees from the form and readd them back;
  2. Relaunch the forms.
