2311000 - How can I see if I have Advanced Reporting enabled


If you encounter the question if you have Advanced Reporting activated, you want to know if you:

  1. Can report on Employee Central Data in the Online Report Designer
  2. Are you using the legacy or new version of Advanced Reporting


  • SAP SuccessFactors Workforce Analytics
  • Advanced reporting


To see if Advanced Reporting has been activated, first navigate to Analytics -> Analytics



 There are currently two versions of Advanced Reporting:

  1. Legacy ODS (Operational Data Storage)
  2. Realms ODS (Operational Data Storage)

The first of the following checks applies for the Legacy ODS, the second for Realms ODS. You can have only either, so it makes sense to check one, then two.


1. Checking for Legacy ODS:

In the Online Report Designer, check the Tool menu in the lower left corner for "Detailed Reporting":



In Detailed Reporting check if you can expand and report on data from "Detailed Reporting" from the left hand menu:




It is possible that you find the Detailed Reporting folder in the left hand menu in the Detailed Reporting tool, but it does not expand. In this case also check "2. Checking for realms ODS"


2. Checking for realms ODS:

  1. Navigate as above to Analytics -> Analytics
  2. Check the Tool menu in the Online Report Designer if there is Detailed Reporting & Advanced Reporting
