SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Employee Profile and see the header where Global Assignment is enabled.

Photo and Username at the top and the Location, Timezone, Phone, etc at the bottom should all be editable via Configure People Profile tool. The block of text in the middle (circled in red) that contains the Home Assignment and Global Assignment data cannot be changed. This data consists of the following:

Inactive 'Home' Assignment:

  • Job Title
  • Department

Active Global Assignment:

  • Job Title
  • Location
  • Assignment Type
  • Department

Please note this logic also applies to Concurrent Employments.


Expected behaviour when employee have multiple assignments.
