SAP SuccessFactors People Profile connects employees and supports talent decisions by delivering relevant, community-enriched employee information through an integrated repository.
With People Profile, you can view and edit a person's entire profile on one simple, consolidated page and take immediate action. You can quickly find the most important or most recent information and drill down to see more detail when needed. The responsive SAP Fiori design means that People Profile adjusts to fit your device, for optimal viewing on desktop, tablet, or smartphone.
Administrators can use a convenient drag-and-drop configuration tool to set up People Profile for your company. You can select which data fields to highlight at the top of the page and control the layout and organization of profile content for your company. Visibility of employee data on the profile is controlled by Role-Based Permissions.
The People Profile page is organized into sections, subsections, and blocks. Related information is grouped together in "blocks" and appears directly on the page background. Details are hidden at first view, to reduce clutter and make the page easier to scan quickly. You can expand or collapse subsections and blocks to show or hide details as needed.
Navigate to People Profile
To navigate to the Employee Profile, proceed as follows:
In the upper left-hand corner of your instance, choose the Navigation Menu and choose My Employee File.
This takes you to your People Profile.
You can see your personal information, such as name, e-mail, location, and so on. The fields listed in this portlet vary depending on your company’s configuration as well as your permission level.
The People Profile includes a configurable page header that displays the profile photo and basic information about an employee.
As you scroll down the page, the header then reduces into a collapsed state and sticks to the top of the page, for easier navigation, as shown here.
The People Profile page is made up of the ‘profile header’ and one or more profile ‘sections’. Each section consists of one or more ‘subsections.’ Each subsection, in turn, consists of either one or two ‘blocks.’
Some blocks are predefined and are not configurable, such as the Succession block, while other blocks are customizable and allow you to configure which data to display, such as User Info or Background blocks.
Most blocks take up one column of a two-column subsection. So, in most cases, you can fit two blocks in each subsection. Some blocks, such as Badges or Skills, take up the full width of the subsection.
People Profile Configuration
People Profile is configured using both Admin Center and the Succession Data Model. The Succession Data Model is an XML file. If you do not have prior experience working with XML, please review the previous lesson, Describing the Basics of Extensible Markup Language (XML).
