Enhancement Request - Request to configure new flex fields that are already contextually sensitive

Depending on the country, region or company, there are many key attributes that a business chooses to maintain categorizing there employees to add value and enrich global/local reporting by adding another dimension. These dimensions can be linked to existing company programs that cannot easily be derived from the existing attributes currently being managed in the assignment. The product allows us to manage these additional values through flex fields (dff/eff) but the flex fields contextual sensitivity to existing attributes missing. The flex fields need to be sensitive to inherited objects like a Legal Employer, or the Legal Employer’s Country. These values are existing as part of the employees assignment, and are available on the page, however we cannot build the contextual sensitivity to it.

Upon performing an update, or correction, the application needs to expose existing elements of the assignment such as Legal Employer, Legal Employer Country which can be retrieved and used to default values or sets of values. In defining local categories of employees where the localizations are currently not present for legislative reporting reasons as an example, we have a set of values that are contextually sensitive to the country of the legal employer. This is a value that is not changing in updates to the assignment details, and if currently implemented now, we need to create an additional DFF which is a selection of countries.
