  • You can repeat the preceding procedure as many times as you want to associate as many groups to an office location as you want, or to associate as many office locations to a group as you want.
  • After your configurations are set, any employee who is sent on global assignment will be automatically invited to the SAP Jam groups associated with the location to which they are being sent, and this behavior will persist into the future. Any employees who were previously sent on global assignment in Employee Central will not be retroactively invited to the groups.
