  • Please remember that tickets via support will adhere to our SLA's (see KBA 2155240) . A general question is a P4, so turnaround times will not be immediate. Product Support will provide updates as per our SLA's.

Customer Success Team

Go Live Transition (also known as PS to CS Transition).

Customer Success will work with our engineers to qualify the defect, and track progress of the bug-fix. Note: SuccessFactors has quarterly releases. Most code fixes will be part of standard release cycles.
