2643043 - Configuring a field as "required" based on an answer to an earlier field

Symptom

  • Can a job application field be configured as "required" based on an answer to an earlier field?

Environment

  • SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Resolution

  • The feature is not supported with the current versions of SuccessFactors Recruiting. Fields cannot be made conditionally required on the application record. A field cannot be hidden, displayed, or made required based on the answer to an earlier field - it is not possible to ask a question like, "Have you ever been convicted of a felony" and then display or require a "Please explain" field if the candidate selects "Yes". The suggested workarounds are:
    • Make the "Please explain" field unrequired and rename it something like "If yes, please explain", or
    • Make the "Please explain" field required and rename it something like "If yes, please explain (enter N/A if not applicable)".
