Default Value in Job Requisition

We are trying to create a rule that will default a value for a field found in Job Requisition (i.e. reason for vacancy) upon creation (oninit). However, it doesn't work in the job requisition.

    Hi Jackielyn,

    Defaulting values on oninit event works only on the short requisition page. Unfortunately you cannot default values in the requisition details page on creation of the requisition.

    The work around I have used for this is to trigger the rule to default a value on onchange event of any mandatory field. For eg create a rule and trigger it when selecting a value from the dropdown of any mandatory picklist field.

    • Hi Jackie,

      I get that but unfortunately it is not feasible.

      Customers would hardly notice if trigger the event on changing one of the fields on the top of Requisition form and the field that needs to be defaulted is somewhere at the bottom.

      In my case I have to default the country when the requisition form is opened. Since I can't do that I have triggered the event on Requisition Type field which is the 2nd field of the form and defaulted the country which is at the bottom of the form. Many end users didn't even notice this till now.

      Thanks for marking my answer.
