2180144 - 2015 LMS Q2 Release: Peer to Peer Recommendations -Could we search for a peer other than name?


We have some questions regarding the Peer to Peer Recommendation feature that was introduced with the new release.

Is there a way to search for a peer other than name? -- any additional fields? How are we supposed to distinguish between two peers if they have the same exact name?

For the recommendation newsletter, will this newsletter only include recommendations made by peers or will it also list the recommendations made by the admin?

  1. Currently we only provide the option searching for names and we do recommend you provide your feedback for enhancements regarding this behaviour by submitting an enhancement request as per the KBA: 2090228 - How to submit enhancement requests for SAP SuccessFactors products .

For the situation that two peers have the same name, per my testing when you search for the name, those users will be listed with the same name, however the name will be listed on a descending order based on their User IDs. Such as two users have the same names but IDs as SAP001 and SAP002, SAP002 will be listed above SAP001.

  1. Per your second question regarding newsletter, the newsletter covering recommendations can come from multiple sources, such as a peer or the recommendations engine which is set by admins.
