While this is the smallest number of changes for 2 years, there are still over 330 items to consider across the SuccessFactors HXM suite. This is in addition to the published lists of ~450 “Fixed Issues” in this release. If you aren’t familiar with the SuccessFactors release process or are unsure how to approach it, then I recommend this article: “SAP SuccessFactors Release Schedule 2022 : Everything you need to know”.
With a lot of Universal updates and some “opt-out” updates, around 75% of all the release updates don’t require any action from customers in order to utilise them. Also, interestingly, for the first time ever (that I’m aware of) there are no items that require Provisioning access to action. Clearly SAP’s strategy to put control in the customer’s hand via the Admin Centre is working.
Recurring themes are continued with increased mobile functionality, user experience enhancements and further localisations, as well as enhancements in recent product solutions such as Opportunity Marketplace, Work Zone for HR and Time Tracking. With the large increase in Opportunity Marketplace updates, for the first time we’ve decided to give it its own article. Not only are we welcoming this new article but also authors from our Zalaris Australia team who have recently joined #teamZalaris.
Enjoy the Articles
Starting today and for the rest of the week, we’ll publish articles on each solution area of the SAP SuccessFactors HXM suite here on our website. In a small change from previous articles, we’ve asked our authors to focus on the changes affecting end users. Hopefully you’ve always got the full SAP release notes in the What’s New Viewer to lean on for all the technical details.
