2477544 - The Development Objectives Portlet Displays the Wrong Development Plan Template by Default


  • The Development Objectives portlet defaults to the wrong Development Plan template.
  • Is it possible to select a default view template for Development Objectives portlet?
  • Custom Navigation links in the profile link to the wrong Development Plan template or Career Worksheet tab


SAP SuccessFactors Career Development Planning


Currently, it is not possible to set a default template to show in the Development Objective portlet on Employee Profile. The system will show by default the latest Development Plan template in your instance.

However, the dropdown menu in the Development Objective portlet has a sticky preference, where the system memorizes the last template the user selected, showing the selected template next time the user access the portlet.

In case you consider the ability to set a default view for the users in the Development Objective portlet an important enhancement for your business, you can always share this idea in our Community so it can be considered to become a future enhancement. 

To have your idea considered and voted on by the community, and to track the interest of others in the community, please follow the steps provides in the KBA 2090228 - How to submit enhancement requests for SAP SuccessFactors products.

Note regarding links in Configure Custom Navigation links:

If you have configured CDP links in Configure Custom Navigation to work from Portlets or the Action menu (Jump To) in Employee Profile/ People Profile, these will also work with the sticky preference. So the last template you looked at, this is what the system will show you when you view it again.

Viewing as a proxy will remember the view of the user you are proxying as.
