SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Person-Based Custom Background Information Blocks

Administrators can now enable custom background information blocks to display all records related to a person so that if the person has multiple employment, all background information records are shown under the People Profile of each employment. By default, records related to a user instead of a person are displayed in background information blocks.

Multiple employment includes global assignments, concurrent employment, and rehire with new employment. If users have permission to view or edit a custom background data element related to one of a person's multiple employment, then they can view or edit the background data element related to the person in the custom background information block. This enhancement is from a Customer Community IdeaInformation published on SAP site.

Users can now view all background information records about a person with multiple employment in one People Profile page.

What's Changed

These are two People Profiles of a person with concurrent employment. Same records of education are displayed in the background information block of each profile.
How It Looks Now

A person with multiple employment, for example, concurrent employment, has two user IDs: "118" for the main employment and "118-2" for the secondary employment. After you enable person-based background information blocks, all records related to the person are displayed in People Profile under each employment, and the duplicate records are merged.

These are two People Profiles of a person with concurrent employment. Different records of education are displayed in the background information block of each profile.
How It Looked Before

A person with multiple employment, for example, concurrent employment, has two user IDs: 118 for the main employment and 118-2 for the secondary employment. By default, only the custom background information records related to the corresponding employment, including the duplicate records, are displayed in People Profile under each employment. Note that for persons with global assignment, only records related to the home assignment, including duplicate records, are displayed in People Profile under each assignment.
