SAP SuccessFactors New Home Page Enabled Soon

In 2019, SAP SuccessFactors announced their new Human Experience Management strategy that puts employees at the center of everything they do. As an important part of this new strategy, SAP SuccessFactors planned a complete transformation of their current Home Page into a new Homepage, also known as the Re-imagined Home Page. The overall goal was to improve the user experience goal with their new Re-imagined Homepage. The new functionality will centre around every individual person’s needs from efficiency through to development and opportunity.

This change is now generally available for all SF customers and SAP SuccessFactors recommends all customers to enable it in test systems, so you can see how it will affect your current setups.

When?

It is important to notice that SuccessFactors will enforce this new Home Page for all customers during this year: 2022. The goal is to create a more dynamic and efficient landing page which means that the look and feel of the Re-imagined Home Page are different from the previous Home Page. Therefore, it would be beneficial to plan a self-migration prior to the preview universal push. Planning an earlier change setup will allow you more time to properly test, configure and validate within your organisation.

The current schedule states that SuccessFactors will universally be applying the Re-imagined Home Page to all customer instances (that are not already migrated) as follows:

  • Preview: June 3, 2022*

  • Production: June 24, 2022*

*These dates are subject to change

Different schedule for VSaaS Customers:
Keep in mind that SuccessFactors encourages their Validated Learning customers to enable and test the Re-imagined Home Page after the first half 2022 upgrade comes available with each of the Validated Learning releases.
The most optimal method to validate and ensure that your organisation is prepared for the change is through enabling the Re-imagined Home Page on your own timeline.

If you choose not to opt-in on your own after the Validated Learning Release upgrade, SF will Universally Upgrade their Validated Learning Customers environments. The Universal Upgrade is planned as follows:

  • Sandbox: June 21, 2022*

  • Preview: July 6, 2022*

  • Production: December 9, 2022*

*dates provided are based on our current plan but are subject to change
