  2. Select an existing Employee Profile view or Add New View.
  3. To add the field to an existing portlet, click the edit icon on an existing “Live Profile User Information” portlet. Otherwise, click “Insert Portlet” > “Create & Add” next to “Live Profile User Information”.
  4. Click the “Add another field” button and select the field you would like to add from the dropdown list of available fields.

How to add a background Fields for Employee Profile

  2. Select an existing Employee Profile view or Add Background Fields
  3. Click “Insert Portlet”. For Standard Scorecard Portlets, you can add the portlet in the “User Elements” and in the “Background Elements” section. For custom background elements, you can only add the portlet in the “Background Elements” section.
  4. Click “Create & Add” or “Add” next to the portlet type that you would like to add.
    1. Create & Add: portlets that have the “Create & Add” option will allow you to specify additional configuration for it. For example, when adding “Background Portlet”, you will be able to specify a Portlet Title, Portlet Description and the Background Element for the portlet.
    2. Add: portlets that only have the “Add” option will not allow additional configuration.
  5. Click “Save Dashboard”.

After adding a standard or background user element to the Employee Profile, you might need to set up user permissions for it. For more information on how to set up RBP permissions over Employee Data, you can see KBA 2300521 - Employee Profile: How to grant RBP permissions over Employee Data?
