Disclaimer: To avoid unnecessary disruption to functionality & live processes SuccessFactors strongly recommends clients plan diligently to discontinue use of, and move off all features that have reached or are nearing end-of-life, or where a recommended replacement has already been released. Features that are past end-of-life date are no longer supported by our release QA cycles, engineering, or support groups. Should a client be using the feature past this date and the feature breaks, loses partial or total functionality SuccessFactors is not responsible for developing a product fix. The client’s only option at that time will be to migrate immediately to the recommended feature replacement or discontinue use of the option. This could seriously put in jeopardy in-progress forms, data, and processes. =======================================================================
