Configuring Profile Lists

Release: 16.2

View As PDF


Profile lists are found on several profiles throughout the system. They are standard lists for information like EEO categories and schools, which users can select from when creating a profile (in the Platform or on the Portal).

Note: The steps below show the process of updating lists, such as the Degrees, Majors, Schools, and Position Level lists, from the Admin > System Configuration > System > Lists page. However, the lists for many dropdown fields across the Platform, such as the Source (rcf3048) field located on the Cand. Details Tab of the Person Profile, may also be located elsewhere within System Configuration. Simply locate the field that you would like to edit the list options for (as described in the Adding and Editing Fields article), and then follow steps 3-7, below 

Configuring Profile Lists
