  • I have unchecked the option ‘Auto Follow Signature Step’ but still in onboarding, text Signature Step is still appearing.


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding


Few of the reason for the text "signature Step" apearing in the onboarding dashboard

  • Signture step is not disabled in super admin site
  • There are few forms which is configured to have the manager signature
  • Before disabling the signature step, you have few activites in signature step
  • The AutoFollow Signature step option does not affect the display. This option when it is checked,  the signature step will follow orientation step . If it is unchecked then you will have a separate Signature step activity.
  • Orientation Step is still enabled in SuperAdmin for the process.
