SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Time-Based Proxy Assignment on User Settings Page

You can now restrict proxy assignments to a specified time range when you assign a proxy to act on your behalf, using your personal account settings.

You can add a start date, an end date, or both when you assign a proxy on the Settings page. The assigned proxy can only access your user account during the specified time range.

Many customers require that proxy assignments have an end date, for compliance purposes. This enhancement is from a Customer Community IdeaInformation published on SAP site.

What's Changed

In the current version, people who are allowed to assign their own proxies can restrict the assignment to a specified date range.
