Similar to Goal Management, Performance Management, and many other SAP SuccessFactors modules, Development Plan configurations reside in an XML-based template. These XML-based templates often can be configured in Admin Center as well. Use Action Search to navigate to Manage Templates and select the Development tab. Then select and open the development plan you would like to edit.
What are General Global Settings?
The first item within a development plan is General Settings (also referred to as Global Settings). This area of the template contains key attributes which set up the plan's main functionality. General Settings do not include the fields, permissions, and layout of the plan.
Some features within General Settings can be configured by a customer's administrator in Manage Templates and others must be configured by a consultant via XML coding. This training will include both options, starting with Admin Center.
Modify General Settings in Admin Center
You can edit the name, instructions, Development Plan start date and end date in the General Settings area of Manage Templates.
If multiple languages have been enabled for the instance, the fields can be updated for the different languages.
