Enables users to view and save job roles, and to gain an understanding of the development effort required to move into a future role. Each role on the worksheet displays the job code, description, and competencies required (as defined in Families & Roles). It can also display a gap analysis for each competency, comparing the last rating of record specified for the employee with the expected rating for that role. This is applicable for both v. 11 and v. 12.

This is an SAP SuccessFactors Business Beyond Bias feature. Use it to support processes that detect, prevent, or eliminate the influence of bias, helping you achieve your diversity and inclusion goals.

Career Path

Replacement of Career Path V1

Career Development Planning has been enhanced with a newer, more flexible Career Path functionality.

While Career Path v2 does not support role import, due to a difference in architecture, it does support branching paths and a higher fidelity to real world career paths, making it a more modern and sophisticated tool.

For Career Path v1, the following dates apply:

  • End of Development Phase: The time leading up to the end of maintenance for a feature or version. During this time, no new features or enhancements will be delivered and only high priority bug fixes will be considered. There is no change in customer support during this phase. Customers are encouraged to start planning their upgrade for the feature or version.

    Starting from Q4 2017, functional enhancements will only be made to Career Path v2 or higher.

  • End of Maintenance: The date after which no further bug fixes or patches will be delivered for the feature or version. Customer support is limited to how-to help.

    Q4 2017 is the last release in which maintenance activities, such as code fixes, will be applied to versions other than v2. As of Q1 2018, no more maintenance activities will be performed for Career Path v1.

  • Replacement Date: The date after which the feature or version is permanently disabled and no longer supported.

    At this time, the replacement date for Career Path v1 is not yet set. It will be announced as soon as possible.
