You can now integrate Qualtrics into your SAP SuccessFactors system, so that employees can provide feedback after they submit a performance review at the end of a performance cycle.

 Employee Central

•    Customizable Key Details on Workflow Requests Page

The My Workflow Requests (Advanced To-do) page has been enhanced to show customized key details about workflows. Such essential information helps users make quick decisions about their workflows. Key details are a summary of critical facts about a workflow. Often a glance at these key details is enough for them to decide what they want to do with the workflows. 

•    Specify Start/End Time for Auto Delegation

The auto delegation feature has been enhanced so that users can specify a period during which they want their workflows automatically delegated to others for approval. By picking up a start time and an end time, users can now specify a period when their auto delegation remains effective.

The enhancement offers users more flexibility, by allowing them to set up auto delegation ahead of when they need it and by turning it off automatically when they don't need it.
