How to add or change Default Welcome Message in Hiring Manager activities


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding 1.0


  1. Administrators can configure default text for the new hire's Welcome Message, which the hiring manager sees in the Write a Welcome Message activity.
  2. To configure the Default Welcome Message text, navigate to SuccessFactors HCM --> Admin Tools  --> Configure new hire activity planning process

  4. To enter translated default text, or see which locales have translated default text already existing, click the globe icon next to the Default Text field. You can only enter translated text for locales already enabled for Onboarding.
