2567887 - Adding Competencies to the Goal Plan - Goal Management


Is it possible to add/code competencies or a competency field to a Goal Plan?


SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management


Currently, adding configuring competencies in a goal plan (TGM) is not supported.

This integration was intended for the Career Development Plan (CDP) and should not be used in the Goal Plan, since it is not as designed by the system.

As the TGM and CDP plans share the same DTD, it may be possible to configure the competencies to be added, however any issues that arise from this configuration will not be supported.

Further to this, it will not be possible to report on the competencies within the Goal Management domain in Report Center.

This configuration is not listed in our Implementation Guide for Goal Management, and trying to code configurations outside of the Implementation Guide or any Official SAP documentation it is considered a customization of the product and it is not supported by SAP.

If you do believe this feature would be helpful for your company, you can refer to our Community and search for an existing Enhancement Request or raise a new one if none related to this was yet created, more information and instructions on this can be seen on the KBA 2090228 - How to submit enhancement requests for SAP SuccessFactors products.
