The article explains how to access and use it.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite
  • Report Center
  • Report Distributor

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the reporting option under the BizX UI
  2. Notice that you don't have an option named as report distributor on the page

Resolution

If the Report Center is enabled, to access the Report Distributor you have to navigate to "Switch to the legacy Report Distributor Tool" under the "View Schedules" tab.

You can then use the Report Distributor and its functionalities as before.

Note:  We recommend to use the Report Center Scheduling functionalities for any new Job Schedule. However, Report Center does not allow scheduling 'Report - Canvas' reports to be exported as CSV / Excel tables. The Legacy Report Distributor tool have this option.
