Must Read: SuccessFactors Internet Explorer 6 Support

We want to let you know about some important changes we're making to SuccessFactors product and its support for Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6 (IE6) Web browser.

Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 6 (IE6) Limited Support & Future Support Timeline

SuccessFactors has discontinued support of IE6 as of October 2012. Currently most existing functionality still works in IE6 but we continue to introduce new capabilities in areas of the user interface that will not be supported in IE6.

As mentioned, all existing features released before the July 2011 are compatible with IE6. We will continue to provide IE6 support for these features up to October 2012.

Why has SuccessFactors discontinued support of IE6?

  • Product Innovation and Ease of Use - As we optimize the ease of use and invest in new functionality to create more value for our customers, we must leverage new technologies commonly supported by more recent browser versions. Unfortunately, these technologies frequently do not work in out dated browser versions such as IE6, which was originally released in 2001.
  • Customer Requirements to Support Latest Technologies & Browsers - Our customers are increasing their rate of adoption of newer browsers and versions. In order to maintain our commitment to meet our customers' current and future business requirements, we continually adjust our focus on current technologies. In this case, we will focus on newer browser versions and technologies.

What should I do to prepare?

If you plan to adopt new SuccessFactors functionality, then we recommend that you partner with yourInformation Technology (IT) department or counterparts to organize your upgrade path as soon as possible. SuccessFactors recommends using browser versions IE7 or IE8.

 

If you have any specific questions about IE6 and SuccessFactors capabilities, please take advantage of the monthly One Voice product management sessions available on the SuccessFactors Customer Community, or you may submit a help request to SuccessFactors through normal Customer Success channels and we'll be more than happy to assist you.
