When I am submitting an offer approval for approval, the full value of a standalone field is not getting sent. For example, 9.20 is being sent as 9.00.
SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management (RCM)
Reproducing the Issue
- Create an offer approval. For the standalone field, that has been configured as customLong in the offer detail template, enter a number that is not whole, 9.20 for example.
- Send the offer for approval. The approver will see the field as a whole number and not 9.20
The reason this is happening is because the field types/ids that are "long" are actually coded to a particular type on the database level. Databases do not support decimals in "long" data types.
The only way to have a field in the offer details template that will allow decimals is to reference a field in the job requisition/application template that is type=currency. This is similar to how the field 'Bonus' in the above screenshots is configured. The field is defined in the job requisition template and this is referenced in the offer detail template (see screenshot below).
If you would like to be able to include decimals in standalone fields then you can submit an enhancement request through following this KBA.
