You have noticed that for some employees, fields that are picklist are displaying with the value Obsoleted.
"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."
SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) - All Versions
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to any Employee's profile;
- Scroll to the Employment Info session;
- Access the Job History;
- See that one or more picklist values appear as Obsoleted
Once you set a picklist as obsoleted, this is not removed from the employees who already use it, however, the system will use the "(Obsoleted)" identification to help you identify whether that picklist value was made obsolete.
