2536894 - Subject Area Marker


When creating or editing Subject Area you have an option to choose a Color and the field Color Preview will show you the Color of the with a default message saying "This will be the color of the Subject Area marker". However you cant see where is this color being applied to when you search for the catalog.



SAP SuccessFactors Learning (LMS)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to References > Learning > Subject Area Marker
  2. Add new or edit an existing Subject Area
  3. Choose a color on the "Color" dropdown
  4. Note that whatever color you have chosen on the field, it will reflect on "Color Preview" field


Our Product Management Team confirmed the following:

The new catalog doesn’t use the Color markers… this feature goes with the old catalog calendar that used to have little squares of color to indicate subject area to.  This deprecated feature may be removed at later time.




This feature is not being used anymore, although still present in the UI. Please review the community or Help Documentation for removed deprecated features in the future.
