It is no surprise that Employee Central has the most updates again. I had to go back to Q1 2017 to find when that wasn’t true! There are also plenty of updates to Platform (aka Foundation) again too, with nearly three-quarters of those being Universal; so, watch out for those. There are also over 500 “Notable Fixed Issues” and a set of published “Known Issues” (S-User required).
As usual, the team here at Zalaris have digested SAP’s What’s New Viewer for this release to bring you a set of articles, by topic, that provide both structure and insight to the wealth of information out there.
Be sure to read up on all the changes affecting the Home Page (now not mandatory until 1H 2022) in the Platform post, especially the new “Quick Approval” cards. It would also be worth paying attention to some of the exciting innovations coming through, such as “Digital Assistant” and “Opportunity Marketplace”, with the “Center of Capabilities” on which it fundamentally relies.
In addition to Amy Wilson’s (SVP Products & Design) usual highlights video, there are, once again, a set of videos released by the SAP team, which you can find on the SuccessFactors Community, sharing insight into their respective areas.
Enjoy the Posts!
Starting today and for the rest of the week, #teamZalaris will be releasing posts here, on our Insights blog, on each functional area of the SAP SuccessFactors suite.
