2617686 - Pre-defined Offer Approval Workflow - Recruiting Management

Symptom

Client would like to be able to have approvers to be automatically populated with a role, recruiting group or a hard-coded approver.

Environment

SuccessFactors Recruiting Management - all versions

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to Recruiting
  • Open a Job Requsition
  • Look for a candidate that needs an Offer
  • Click on Take Action
  • Select Offer Approval

Resolution

Defined Pre-defined Offer Approval Workflow in the Approval in the XML.

If the XML for the pre-defined Offer Approval is configured, the offer approvers will be automatically populated with a role, a recruiting group or a hard-coded approver.

Enabling this pre-defined offer approval workflow prevents the offer approval from being improperly routed. Users can also re-order approvers by clicking the up and down arrow icons next to the "Add Another" option.

When pre-defining the offer approvers based on recruiting group, it is still possible to select users from outside the recruiting group by clicking the "Find users" buttom on the right side of the system search box. Pre-defining the offer approvers based on recruiting groups will only prevent mistakes when searching for users in the search box mentioned in the last image below.

NOTE:PLEASE CONTACT YOUR PARTNERS OR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES TO HELP YOU CONFIGURED PRE-DEFINED OFFER APPROVAL WORKFLOW.
