2755897 - Table reports and canvas reports: inactive users


Do table reports and canvas reports include inactive users?


SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite


Both report types can include inactive users, but they handle them differently.

Table Report (Ad hoc report):

Excludes inactive users by default.
In the People tab of the editor, you can click People to see the option to include inactive users.

Canvas Report (ORD / Analytics):

  • Live Data:
    Works similar to Table reports. Excludes inactive employees by default.
    Includes them when the same is specific in the People Scope

  • Advanced Reporting:
    Includes all users by default. 
    Build a test query on employees and their status to see which status categories (e.g. Retired, Terminated) should be included in any filter on inactive users. 
    The correct categories may vary depending on the instance's configuration.
