2: Under Company Settings, go to "Configure Object Definition"

3: Select 'Object Definition' in 1st drop down and 'Position' in 2nd drop down

5: Under Succession, go to Position Tile

6: Click on Filter icon, you would see Position Title and Code, Title & Code fields, as below:



The 3 fields named Position Title & Code, Code and Title will always show under Filter section of Position Tile that means these 3 fields are hard coded and is designed to show by default as filter fields for Position Tile and it is not possible to remove these 3 fields from Position Tile View.


 In b1705 release, Keyword Search filter option on the Position Tile View is replaced with a simpler search that only looks at position titles and codes. 

Previously, all fields you defined as searchable in the Metadata Framework (MDF) Position object were used for both the keyword search and were available as other filters for the Position Tile View.  Now, to improve performance while maintaining the robust filtering options, the search filter on the Position Tile View is limited to just position titles and codes and has been renamed accordingly from "Keyword Search" to "Position Title and Code." 
The rest of the Position Tile View filtering options remain unchanged,you can still add filters for all the searchable fields defined for the position object.
