2248391 - Operational Planning - Time Periods


The Source Periods for the Business Factors in an Operational Planning forecast do not extend to the most recently reported month.


SuccessFactors Workforce Planning

Reproducing the Issue

Open Workforce Planning (either Operational Forecasts or All Forecasts) and edit an existing Operational Forecast or start a new one.  View the Source Period ranges in the bottom section of the first screen.


The default Source Periods project back 18 months from the last reporting date and then work forward the Number of Months selected in the Timeframe section.  The default Number of Months is 6.


If you set the Number of Months to 18, the Source Periods will end at the last reported month.  If you set the number higher they will even project into the future.
