2085356 - Creating Worksheets by Employee Group in SuccessFactors Compensation


  • Customers often want to launch worksheets at different times during the year, to accommodate local planning practices.
  • Without this feature, the rollup report would not work, and employees would be added to multiple forms.
  • Now Admin can now select a dynamic group of employees on the Create Worksheets page, and create worksheets for the Planners of those employees.
  • Can we launch compensation worksheets to dynamic groups of people?

Note: This option can be enabled/disabled ONLY when there are no worksheets launched for a plan/template.

Images and data are taken from SAP demo environments. Any resemblance to real-world data is coincidental.

 Why use this?

  • Example: UK merit planning takes place in March; Netherlands merit planning takes place in April.  Planner with teams in both countries will receive one worksheet with UK employees, another for Netherland employees.
  • Rollup report enhanced to include both worksheets; no duplication of employees on worksheets
  • If you share group with another user they must have role base permission to the "Manage Employee Groups"
  • If groups are shared they can be cloned in order to make changes to it, only the original owner can make changes to the shared group.
