2261643 - Platform | Enable People Search on Alternate fields


How to enable people search on alternate fields other than the first name, last name and username.


You can now search for people in the global people search box using the following name fields from Employee Central:

Formal Name, Alternative Formal Name (Alt1 and Alt2), Preferred Name, Display Name, Alternative Display Name (Alt1 and Alt2), Second Last Name, Alternative First Name (Alt1 and Alt2), Alternative Last Name (Alt1 and Alt2), Alternative Middle Name (Alt1 and Alt2), and Partner Name.

To have "People Search on Alternate fields" enabled in your instance, please contact SuccessFactors.

SAP Successfactors Support can enable this by checking the option "Enable People Search On Alternate Fields" in provisioning.

SAP Note: As these alternate fields appear for only customers with Employee Central, this change will have effect only if the customer is on Employee Central.
