Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
  • Talent Management 
  • Compensation

Resolution

  • In the older compensation or varpay worksheets it is not possible to customize the budget labels.
  • In the latest version of our worksheets it is possible to customize the budget labels. We encourage all clients to enable the latest worksheets before their 2015 compensation cycles start to take advantage of this and many other benefits of the latest designs.
  • To change the budget labels in the latest worksheet versions it will require a change in the XML template. You will need to create a case with Customer Support.Support or Partners will modify your worksheet template as follows:

As the change is at template level, the New UI allows you to have different budget labels for each template.

  • To modify the “Budget” label you will need to change/add the following field.
    <comp-field-definition id="budget" isCustomField="false" isVisible="true" useFor="salary" readOnly="false" hidePercentage="false" hideAmount="false" percentageReadOnly="false" reloadable="true">

        <comp-field-label><![CDATA[ADD THE NEW LABEL]]></comp-field-label>

        </comp-field-definition>

  • To modify the “More to Allocate” label you will need to change/add the following field.
    <comp-field-definition id="moreToAllocate" isCustomField="false" isVisible="true" useFor="salary" readOnly="false" hidePercentage="false" hideAmount="false" percentageReadOnly="false" reloadable="true">

        <comp-field-label><![CDATA[ADD THE NEW LABEL]]></comp-field-label>

        </comp-field-definition>

  • To modify the “Total” label you will need to change/add the following field.
    <comp-field-definition id="budgetPlannedTotal" isCustomField="false" isVisible="true" useFor="salary" readOnly="false" hidePercentage="false" hideAmount="false" percentageReadOnly="false" reloadable="true">

        <comp-field-label><![CDATA[ADD THE NEW LABEL]]></comp-field-label>

        </comp-field-definition>

  • Changes cannot be made to live worksheets.
  • You can customize this per template
  • No cost, but will require a CCOR
