How to Enable and Configure the New People Profile


  • SAP SuccessFactors Cloud HCM Suite
  • Prerequisites: Employee Profile, Version 12 User Interface, Role-Based Permissions, Metadata Framework



People Profile supports all major functionality available in earlier versions of the Employee Profile while introducing greater configurability and complete role-based permission control. Most Employee Central functionality is also currently available in People Profile. People Profile uses a responsive design that adjusts the layout format to fit your device, for optimal viewing on desktop, tablet, and smartphone. All of the information that was previously displayed on many different pages or tabs is now gathered together on a single page that can be read at a glance. You can see the most important or most recent information upfront and drill down to see more detail when you need it. Instead of a separate "public profile" page, People Profile uses a collapsible page header that is fully configurable and permission-controlled. All of the information and functionality on your existing employee profile are now available on the single, unified People Profile page, or can be accessed immediately in a dialog window. Administrators can also use a convenient drag-and-drop configuration tool to set up the People Profile and manage its content and layout.
