    Hi,
    1)We created a few custom fields by admin, but then when ESS user tries to add the data, it can not be done, eventhough the edit button is pressed. The field is "grayed out". Is there anyway we can do this?.
    2) There are many fields that can not be added by ESS users. We want to have ESS user to input the data e.g. DOB, etc but it also can not be done. It makes much more easier for HR people by letting the ESS user to put information of his/her to ESS screen. Is there anyway we can do this?
    Regards, Azanio

    Hi,
    Custom field can be entered by Admin and a supervisor of that ESS user.

    Some of the fields of the PIM tab has been disabled to ESS for some security purposes. As an example if an Ess user is allowed to add DOB they can enter a later date which causes them to stay longer in the company they are working. And this will affect other areas like wrong report generating. So this may give wrong information to the Admin.

    Because of legal ramifications we ( HR) have to look at the proper documentation before the information
    is added to the system. Example: Data of birth. HR needs to verify that is correct.
    It’s the same for immigration. Visa status

    Employees would love to change their own salary.. :-)

    All the fields that are not editable by ESS user are the fields that HR needs to verify before adding into the system.

    Hope this is helpful..
