Editing candidate resets EEO values to default

Post by dmcman73 » 01 May 2015, 14:45

I have EEO tracking on and I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this but, if you go to edit a candidate, say to enter their desired salary, whatever value there was set for either their race, veteran status and/or disability status is reset to the default " ----" value. It does not do this with the Gender one though.

I modified the lines in the code (in the add.tpl, edit.tpl and the careers module) to change some of the descriptions and also added some as well as requested by legal. I also added the same exact descriptions and value numbers to the database as well so it all matched. Everything works and is displayed as it should but, as soon as you click on edit in the candidate display, those EEO fields get reset on the edit page. Is there a way to tell the system to pull the value from the database rather than reset the field to the default "-----" as soon as you click edit?

Also, is there a reason why in the code that all of the EEO labels are "canRelocateLabel" and "canRelocate", shouldn't these be unique? I didn't change these as this is how it is in the original code base and didn't want to break anything.

This is the code section in the Edit.tpl:
