2772934 - Unexpected errors when using a custom employee-status or event value

Symptom

You are getting any unexpected error when saving a record with a custom employee status or custom event.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) - All Versions

Cause

You can't create custom events or employee status.

Resolution

These two picklists are standard and you should never create custom values for them since this will cause several unexpected behaviors in several parts of EC where employee data is used such as Imports, TIM, Job history, and so on.

If you want you can relabel the standard employee-status and event picklist.
