During the 2018 Q4 release the setting for "placemat link colour" was made customizable in Theme Manager. The default colour in the SuccessFactors system was set to white, so any customers using a white background would not be able to see the links in the placemat.

  • Go to admin center -> theme manager.
  • Click on the appropriate theme.

  • Scroll down to "placemat".
  • Change the colour for "link colour", for example to black.
