Reproducing the Issue

For Onboarding 2.0, employee portal will not be available. Instead, home page will be used to share company information with onboardees. Onboardees will need to be able to access company documents such as policy handbook and benefit guide from the home page.


As part of 1908, if you are an Onboarding Customer and are an administrator, you can now create a custom tile to distribute onboarding documents from the Home Page to specific users or user groups.


You are a customer of SAP Successfactors Onboarding
