In this series of posts I will examine common issues that can be addressed through the Plateau Report Designer (PRD) custom reporting tool for the Successfactors Learning Management Sysetm (LMS.) The reporting task addressed in this post will be extending a previous post’s solution for reporting on Learning History. The last report extended the Learning History (CSV) report and added in a couple of Non-Referenced custom fields. This version will demonstrate how you would bring in a custom user referenced field. To download the previous file click here, for the completed version from this article, please click here.
The documentation given out for the PRD classes goes about pulling in the custom fields in a different way than I will be discussing here. For this solution we will be utilizing view tables to get the reference id and then using that to access the table with the referenced id description.
