2574182 - Enhancement request: Microsoft VLS Integration

Symptom

Will VLS integration work with Microsoft Office 365 with Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Learning

Cause

This is an existing Enhancement Request, please follow the ER for updates

Resolution

  • Microsoft Office 365 with Skype for Business does not work with SuccessFactors Learning - VLS Skype/Lync Integration functionality.
  • As per Product Management: "Per our discussions with Microsoft, their strategy is to migrate all customers to the Virtual Conferencing solution offered via their Teams product and all enhancements will be made on that Platform only. As such, it doesn't make sense for us to invest in an integration with this product - we are, instead, in discussions with Microsoft on integrating SuccessFactors products with the Microsoft Teams product."
  • https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/idea/227009 - Microsoft Teams has been accepted. Please vote on Microsoft's site for this integration. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/41638747-successfactors-sf-learning-management-system-lm
    • When voting on Microsoft's site, please be as detailed as possible what business requirements you need from Teams. VLS integration uses the APIs of the vendor thus if there is no API that might cover a business need, then the integration might not be as feature complete as it could be once it's rolled out.
