2081514 - Nominate External Hires - Can you nominate successors from outside the company? - Recruiting

Symptom

  • Nominate External Hires
  • Can you nominate successors from outside the company

Environment

  • Recruiting Management.

Resolution

  • If you have the SuccessFactors Recruiting module implemented, you can optionally allow succession planners to name external candidates (from the recruiting candidate database) as successors. Just go to Admin tools > Succession > Nominations Setup and check "Allow succession planners with recruiting candidate search permissions to nominate external candidates".

     
  • If you don't have the Recruiting module, the workaround is to create a "dummy" user record and name that user as a successor. For example you could create one record named "External Hire" and enter the actual name of the candidate in the notes field in the succession nomination record.
