2511842 - Competency Behavior Description does not support formatting


Competency behavior description does not support  formatting (eg. new line, bold, list order, etc via tokens or HTML tags) as competency description does


  • Performance Management
  • Competency and Behaviors


  • This is expected system behavior. 


  •  The behavior description is still a text area input. PM page should display exactly what user inputs. If user types 11 chars “<b>test</b>” then page should display that 11 chars instead of a bold “test” string. This is for security purpose to avoid some javascript hack attack (user may type javascript in that text area input)
  • Only when EZ rater is used in the section will the formatting be done otherwise not.
