Modified on Wed, 12 Jul 2023 at 03:06 AM

About This Document:
This document details the steps required to modify gender options according to your organization requirements.

This procedure requires that the AkkenCloud User have access to the Admin module > Data Management in order to modify drop down menus.


Step 1:

Edit the Gender field in a drop-down list with additional entries as required:

This can be converted one time in any of the gender drop downs that an admin can edit, and will show in the following AkkenCloud Modules for all users:

  • HRM - Applicant Tracking
  • HRM - Hiring Management
  • HRM - Employee Management
  • ESS User - My Profile

Note that once additional Gender values are added and used, the value cannot be deleted.

Step 2:

Enable with the customer ITM and short and long forms, under Admin > Website Management > Job Posting preferences, and make a required jobsite field (if desired).

This will force the user to select the gender options updated in step 1 on the company website and will be reflected in the 

  • ITM - Short Form/Long form/AOB

If the gender field is to be a required field, please notify so that the technical team can update this backend setting.
