2088010 - Home Page Tiles: Admin Alerts Tiles - BizX Platform

Symptom

About the content of the Admin Alerts tile on the Revolution Home Page.

  • The Admin Alerts tile is a compact way to see all the pending action items you track throughout SuccessFactors.
  • The Tile is organized the same way you work, into Workflow activities, People activities, and HR Data activities. 
  • You'll be able to quickly see how many activities are pending and make updates, changes, or get more details about those activities directly from the tile. 
  • You won't have to first navigate to the individual tool or find the exact employee anymore. You can take action directly from the tile.

Environment

BizX Platform

Resolution

  • Admin Alerts is a new portlet on the Homepage which has 3 categories. By using Admin Alerts you won't have to first navigate to the individual tool or find the exact employee involved – you can see the items that need attention and then click to go straight to what you need to action. Rather than displaying all items the Admin Alerts tile is focused on displaying items that interfere with the efficient and timely operation of the HR process.
  • Admin Alerts shows a category of stalled ‘Stalled Workflow Requests’ not acted upon for 3 days or more. Items are grouped by workflow type and in age order.
  • In the ‘People Issues’ category the pending hire count is displayed.
  • In the ‘HR Data Issues’ category Invalid Foundation Object alerts are displayed too. This will display Objects; after a scan has been of the employee job information table and there are Foundation Objects present that are referenced that have a status of deleted, inactive or there is an association issue.
  • The number of items in each category is also displayed in the red circle.
  • You can expand and contract the tile by using the arrow at the bottom.
