SAP SuccessFactors What's New Viewer

Supplemental Tasks on the Latest Home Page

You can now create supplemental tasks for the latest home page. You can also import supplemental tasks you created for the legacy home page.

Supplemental tasks are custom tasks, created by administrators to "supplement" the system-generated tasks in a given business process. Each supplemental task is assigned to a "category" that corresponds with one type of system-generated task. For example, you can create a supplemental task in the Review Your Performance category and it's appears in the same "stack" as system-generated Review Your Performance tasks. If no system-generated tasks are available on the latest home page for a given category, then the supplemental task appears by itself on the home page.
