Deprecation Details

Microsoft is ending support for Internet Explorer 11. We support browser versions that are still supported by their developers, so we've started to deprecate our support for Internet Explorer 11 in the SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite. Also, Internet Explorer 11 relies on older technologies and doesn't support modern UX constructs. More modern browsers allow us to deliver a better end-user experience.

After the End of Maintenance date, we won't fix any issues that occur as a result of Internet Explorer 11 and its limitations. We won't develop or test with Internet Explorer 11 in mind, so new UI development after this date may not work fully on Internet Explorer 11. We recommend that you plan to ensure that everyone in your organization can access the system using a supported browser by this date.

After the Deleted date, all support for the use of Internet Explorer 11 with will be removed, including how-to information.
