Reproducing the Issue

Login to a People Profile enabled instance. (1611 or prior release)

Search for Employee.

Take action - Change job and compensation information.

Click "show 40 more fields".

For example: Change Employee Group, you'll see that the Employee Subgroup is not easily visible and you need scroll way down to find the field.

When you view the employee job information the fields are together.  In the PP configuration they are together as well.


This is a known issue and is fixed with 1702 release.


A new option to configure field in Edit mode has been provided under Configure People Profile admin tool with 1702 release.

Click on the Job Information Block and on right hand side you can see "You can configure fields of the Edit Dialog here." link. Click on it.
