Goto any MSS page (example: change job and compensation information) with manual event reason selection:

Not sorted Event.JPG

As we can see above, the Event is not shown in alphabetical order


  • Event is a predefined base object delivered in Successfactors application
  • We have limited way of customizing it and sorting it is not possible


  • Sorting Event is not possible. We already have an enhancement request #ECT-11480 for the same but product team has not made any plans on it yet
  • However, you can sort other picklists in alphabetical order by enabling Sort Picklists Alphabetically option in provisioning:

  • If sort picklist alphabetically is not enabled, then all picklists will follow option-Id to sort the picklist order
