Custom-select vs Drop-down

asked Feb 9, 2017 in Recruiting Management by Vijayshree (310 points)  

Hello guys,

Could anyone let me know how we remove the 'custom-select' options for Enum types location and department (screenshots attached) and have them appear as dropdowns instead. 

It is said that any values > 100 appear as Custom Select Options. Is there anyway to change this?

Dear Vijayshree,

                       If you want to have a dropdown in that portlet, create a picklist and map it to the portlet value.

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your answer. But the thing is, the same XML is populating as drop down for Location and Department fields in a different environment. Is there any setting i might be missing out on?

Hi Vijayshree,

                        Check the field Data type value is in Picklist and enter the picklist id on the Valid Value Source.
