Some development goals appear in Employee Files while others do not

SAP SuccessFactors Career Development Planning

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Employee Files
  2. View the Development portlet
  3. View that some goals will display in one Development Plan
  4. View that another Development Plan displays none of the goals


The XML template needs the following switch to appear in Employee Files

    <switch for="development-scorecard-show-all-goals" value="on" />

If switch value is "off" or the switch does not exist in the XML template then Dev Goal has to be added manually and there should be an option to Add Development Goal to Scorecard.

    <switch for="development-scorecard-show-all-goals" value="off" />

  • Have a partner add the development-scorecard-show-all-goals switch to the Development Plan XML Template.
  • Product support can also make this change with a SCR, see KB article 2252618
