In 2020, SAP SuccessFactors will be replacing their existing LMS Admin interface with a new and enhanced version because the current interface includes Adobe Flash components. Since Adobe is ending support for Adobe Flash Player, the SuccessFactors LMS team has been working on a replacement. This is also why no new features have been added to the Learning module during the last year.
A new way of handling admin tasks
A new LMS Admin tile will appear in the landing page of SuccessFactors (if you have access to LMS Admin). From this tile, you can access the new HTML5-based user interface that is developed in the same look and feel as the rest of the SuccessFactors family. And since the interface is made in HTML5, you will no longer need a plugin. This will be the new way of handling LMS admin tasks such as uploading eLearning and creating new courses, assessments, surveys, etc. The old LMS Admin interface will be discontinued by the end of 2020.
The new Admin user interface will be available for all users by the spring of 2020, for both standard and validated customers. From spring 2020 until autumn 2020, both the new Admin user interface and the old Flash-based user interface will be available for Learning Administrators. From autumn 2020, the Flash-based user interface will be closed.
Which roles are affected?
If you are a Learning Administrator, you will have to familiarize yourself with the new user interface. There will also be some new naming conventions: CLASS will for example change to COHORT. Regular users of SuccessFactors LMS will not experience the changes.
