2630617 - Legacy Performance Features Removal


SuccessFactors Learning announced in 2015 that the legacy Performance functionality is going to be deprecated. We have provided multiple reminders in Release Information Webinars.


The supported usage of Competencies is to create them in BizX and synchronize to Learning using the Competency Connector - SF. These Competencies can then be associated with Items in Learning. Learning competencies can be recorded by auto-assessment via Learning Event Recorder. The competency assessment data related to learning completions will continue to exist in Learning, and is not going to be purged.


Functionality related to user-level competencies will not be supported in Learning; these should be managed in BizX. For this reason, the following functions will be removed from Learning or not supported:

  • Competencies and Competency Profiles assignment to Users will not be supported.
  • Competency Gap Assistant, Competency Assessment Recorder and Competency Assessment Editor to manage user-level competencies will be removed.
  • Competency Portlet will be removed from Learning because it would only display Learning related competencies, which does not provide a complete picture. Customers will need to use BizX Competency Portlet that displays all competencies.


Customers will need to engage Professional Services to analyze their requirements and recommend BizX tools that can be implemented for the same functionality.
