SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Creating Locations in Employee Central and Replicating to Employee Central Payroll

The feature is no longer available for 2H 2020.

The framework adds two new fields to the Locations, which interface, allows creating and maintaining personnel areas and personnel subareas in Employee Central that replicate to Employee Central Payroll. This operation is valid for creation of new area objects as well as changing area objects.

This feature allows the administrator in Employee Central to create and maintain personnel areas and personnel subareas. The new or changed personnel areas and subareas are replicated to Employee Central Payroll.

Configuration Requirements

Synchronization Support Package EA-HR SP86 must be installed in your Employee Central Payroll system.

Please note that, while the Employee Central side of this feature is available, you can't use the feature as a whole until the support package mentioned is released. Note also that the full documentation won't be available until then either.
