2301163 - Notification for job to sync Candidate profile Background Elements with Employee profile Background Elements - Recruiting Management


This article explains the new notification that customers started receiving after the b1602 release for the sync for Candidate profile Background Elements with Employee profile Background Elements (CAND USER BG SYNC).


SuccessFactors Recruiting Management


Before the b1602 release was rolled out, the Candidate Background elements were not synced with the user background elements, during import of user background elements.

After this release has been rolled out, Background Elements on the Candidate Profile will be synced with User Background Elements when User Background Elements are imported. The sync is bi-directional.

This is being done by a batch job running at the back end-Candidate User Background elements Sync. 

This job type is to update the sm-mapped background fields in Candidate profile, when User background elements are imported/updated.

This job is generating this notification, which notifies user that the candidate profile is updated with the employee profile based on the imported data. Before the release users were already receiving a notification for the background elements, and now, we can expect that we will receive these two notifications going forward. 


This email will be send every time the job runs, irrespective of the options selected. At this time, this notification cannot be disabled
