2442975 - New HomePage - Birthday and Anniversary

Symptom

  • On the new Homepage V3, there is a new tile for Birthday/Work Anniversary.
  • Can you confirm if there is any configuration option for this? 
  • When does it show up? 
  • How long will it stay?
  • Can you activate work anniversary & deactivate birthday or vice versa?

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite

Cause

  • Homepage v3 will include "work anniversary"(based on users start date) tile. 
  1.  hire date can be got from UserBean (java.util.Calendar userHireDate): FindUserByIdV4Impl.java 
  2.  date of birth can be got from SuccessionProfileBean(Date dateOfBirth): GetProfileV5Impl to get SuccessionProfileBean

Resolution

  • When you login as a manager the tile should display under My Team whenever the event is occurring within 5 days.
  • The sorting of the reports birthday/anniversary is based on "remainingDays".
  • The text displayed on the birthday and anniversary tile will state for example Work Anniversary Today or Birthday in 2 days.
  • There is no configuration to control when this shows up, i.e. how many days prior to the actual date, this is hardcoded to 5 days prior to the actual date.
  • No text will be displayed for any birthday or anniversary that is not within 5 days.
  • The text will be displayed for both Matrix Reports & Direct Reports.
  • The tile shows under 'My Team' section.
  • If the direct/matrix report has photo, it displays correctly on the tile. Hover on the photo and you can see the full name of this person.
  • If the direct/matrix report doesn't have photo, it will display a default photo and the name of the person on top of the tile.
  • You are unable to activate work anniversary and deactivate birthday or vice versa. Both are activated together and you are unable to amend this.
