recommendations

Hello,

When I add received-recommendations to my field selector, I get the following XML (relevant, anonymized, part copied below):

<recommendation>
<id>...</id>
<recommendation-type>
<code>colleague</code>
</recommendation-type>
<recommendation-text>bladiebla.</recommendation-text>
<recommender>
<id>...</id>
<first-name>D.</first-name>
<last-name>van W.</last-name>
</recommender>
</recommendation>

Is it possible to get more fields?
- I would like to know the position the recommendation belongs to
- I would like to know the "Top qualities" 3 fields
- I would like to get the date the recommendation was given

Is it possible to get this information using e.g. the profile API ?

Sincerely yours,

@Sourabh: Please see my reply to your other post.

@Thijs: Those additional fields aren't available at this time. I'll be sure the product manager knows of your request and hopefully we can support additional info in the future.

Thanks!

@Jeremy, can we have a release date for these additional fields please? ...this year/ next year/ never/ etc. ?

Without the date and where the recommender belongs to, is difficult to sort/reference the list of recommendations.
