Profile Re-architecture: Field Mapping
SummaryWhich fields to select DFFs or standard existing fields?
We have started to do the field mapping in our development environment for Profiles.
In the new model you can no longer re-label the existing field labels via Configuration and this needs to be done via Personalization (HCM Experience Studio). This is a step backwards as we could do the label changes directly via configuration and also we need to do the translations in another 5 languages also this way.
We are considering now whether to map all fields to DFFs as this is easier to configure to change the labels/translate. Another known issue is that a mixture of both DFFs and existing fields will not work for some of content sections as we cannot change the sequence.
