Reproducing the Issue

Define a multiattachmentselection field defined in your application template, provide the write permissions to the user, it will still remain uneditable in the following scenarios


As per our Product Management team, Users will not be able to add/edit any values to multiattachmentselection field if any of the condition is true :

  1. If Job Req is closed or
  2. If candidate is rejected or 
  3. If candidate is in a status which has the category as 'Hired' (job application status)


For the multiattachmentselection to be editable, make sure the permissions are in place and :

1) The job requisition should not be closed

2) Candidate should not be rejected/disqualified

3) Candidate should not be in the status which has the category as 'Hired' in the talent pipeline

(You can check this under Admin Center -> Edit Applicant status configuration -> Open the status set and you can see there is a column called 'Category' and it should not be Hired for this field to be editable)
