2087359 - Stack Ranker - You do not have permission to rank these users - Performance Management


User with access to stack ranker or my team rater are getting the message "You do not have permission to rank these users" when trying to open the screen.


SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management


User has not been granted wite permission to item ratings for all users in the stack.


In order to correct this scenario, please grant WRITE permission to the item rating field for the user (usually the Manager) for them to be able to use stack ranker.

Go to Admin Center > Manage Templates > [Select the template] > Edit Fields and Sections > Select the Competency section > Show advanced options > Field Permissions.

If you have extended the stack ranker to people other than the direct manager you must also grant that person write permission to alter the item ratings for all those you are going to stack rank. If for example in the PM process you have HR as a step, but in that step you blocked HR from being able to change the item ratings, you cannot now send all the forms to the HR person in a future step and expect they can now stack rank the same people. Therefore for anyone to be able to use stack ranker, you must have item rating permissions for everyone in that group. If not you will see the message “You do not have permission to rank these users”.
