    Some "Job Categories" don't display for a contact (e.g. Vendor) -- Why?

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Alma


    Add a user (e.g. vendor) in "Add Contact" button, but in the Contact Details page, not all choices are available in the Job Category drop-down menu.

    However, these Job Categories are defined in: ADMINISTRATION > User Management Configuration >Configuration Menu > User Details > Job Categories.

    Why don't they show up for (e.g.) the Vendor?


    All Job Categories are defined under: User Management Configuration > Job Categories

    The next step is to enable each category, for any of the Record Types (e.g. Contact, Public, Staff), from:

    User Management Configuration Menu > User Record Type/Job Category

    Additional Information

    After updating the second table, it will be possible to select the desired Job Category, for the user.
