An instance is the front end, or customer-facing view, of the SAP SuccessFactors system platform. SAP SuccessFactors customers work together with Professional Services Consultants (Implementers) to configure their own instance of SAP SuccessFactors.
Consultants, administrators, and end users see the same interface, but just like any other system, access to tools varies depending on what has been configured.
During configuration, implementers will use the Admin Center to set up and configure some of the basic system features in the instance. These include:
Customizing the look and feel of the instance, including company colors, logo, and customization of the home page
Enabling and customizing E-mail Notification Templates
Replacing text to match company-specific terminology
After configuration, administrators will use the Admin Center to modify any features configured during implementation, if needed, and to initiate and manage company processes and cycles, as well as maintain system data and users. These include:
Importing and updating user information
Resetting user passwords and accounts
Later in this unit, you will learn more about common tasks and features in the Admin Center.
Company ID is the unique identifier of an instance. Username and Password are the login credentials associated to each user.
