Symptom

  • Unavailability of a MDF position sync has prevented non-EC customers from adopting MDF based Succession planning and take advantage of all the features of the suite.
     
  • The new MDF sync will enable that adoption and will provide several enhancements over existing sync:
    Less TBH position creation resulting in reduced clean-up efforts.
    Detailed sync report emailed to administrator providing additional insights on the sync.
    Reduced options to configure sync providing consistent results across customers and reducing CS and PS loads.

Environment

  • Succession Management

Use Cases:

  • Unavailability of a MDF position sync has prevented non-EC customers from adopting MDF based Succession planning and take advantage of all the features of the suite. The new MDF sync will enable that adoption and will provide several enhancements over existing sync:
  • Less TBH position creation resulting in reduced clean-up efforts.
  • Detailed sync report emailed to administrator providing additional insights on the sync.
  • Reduced options to configure sync providing consistent results across customers and reducing CS and PS loads.

 

Who should not use this feature?

  • Customers who would like to continue with legacy positions, and risk-averse customers that do not like being on the leading edge may want to wait until b1305. For b1302 only select beta customers should use the new sync with full awareness of implications of a beta release.

Questions?

Is there a cost?

  • No additional licensing fee. PS consulting engagement is required to implement or convert to MDF positions, however, customers already converted don’t need additional PS engagement to use sync. 

Is there a forced migration?

  • No forced migration. Beta release in 1302 for select customers.
