2761664 - Textarea fields in candidate application

Symptom

TextArea fields in candidate application page are displayed in a continuous, unformatted paragraph with no scroll bar.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Cause

The user only has read permission for the TextArea field.

Resolution

This is currently considered expected behavior. The text area field appears formatted for users with write access, but if the user has read access then its appearing as a single unformatted paragraph. There is no scroll bar when you have a TextArea in read only. There will be a scroll bar when the user has write permission.
