Symptom

  • As of the 1911 release, employees can now have their Background Element data copied over to their new employment during rehire;
  • Previously, Background Element data would only be maintained on the original employment and would need to be manually re-submitted after the 'Rehire with New Employment' was completed.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile
