eRecruitment: Not able to get the PDF overview for a candidate.

Hi ,

When a recruiter tries to click on the candidate link which opens up an Candidate overview PDF. But for one recruter the candidate overview is opening up in an HTML format. I have checked both the users SU01 details and defaults tab have maintained same for both of them even then for one user its opening up in an PDF and for the other in HTML.

Most of the Recrutiers are able to view the Overview in the PDF format but having an issue with this one.

I found that there is an std class CL_HRRCF_CANDIDATE_ADMIN_BL and method GET_PREF_DATA_OVER is what deciding which format its coming based on the user (sy-uname)

if this method returns initial it goes to PDF method (GET_PDF_OUTPUT of the CL_HRRCF_CAND_DOVR_NEW_A) and it this fetches the HTML then it goes to method ( GET_XSF_OUTPUT of CL_HRRCF_CAND_DOVR_NEW_A) .

i have tried to debug the GET_PREF_DATA_OVER to find out what exactly has to be changed for the user so that it fetches intial or PDF but couldnt get it.

Can any one tell me what has to be changed or some settings for this user so it opens it in PDF format.

Thanks & Regards,

    Dear Dipu,

    You can try in table T77RCF_UI_PARAM to restrict the PDF format with this entry :

    hrrcf_cand_dovr DISPLAY_PDF X

    Hope it helps,

      I got it the ESS tab of recruiters i.e., when recruiter enters as an internal employee and In HCMS profile there is Personal settings there recruiter has selected the HTML as the display format for the data overviews so when recruiter was trying to open the candidate profiles it was opening up in the HTML format.

      As the table SPERS_OBJ (Personalization object repository) holds the details of this changes the method GET_PREF_DATA_OVER is fetching details from this table.

      Thanks Bala and Christine for your replies.

      Thanks & Regards,
