2848610 - Matrix Grid Reports - matrix1Label and matrix2Label


The purpose of this page is to explain the standard elements "matrix1Label" and "matrix2Label", which display the latest placement of a user for the Matrix Grid Reports.


SAP SuccessFactors Succession Management


The "matrix1Label" and "matrix2Label" standard elements allow customers to display the latest placement from the Matrix Grid Reports in the Employee Profile or to export this value.

Those two standard elements can be used to display the latest placement (box) from the Matrix Grid Reports (Performance-Potential and How vs. What) in the Employee Profile and to export these values via a Personal Information Export.

What to be aware of:

  • The "matrix1Label" element corresponds to the Performance-Potential Matrix Grid Report and the "matrix2Label" to the How vs. What Matrix Grid Report. 
  • The information from these fields is calculated at runtime, which means that they are calculated when they need to be displayed in the Employee Profile or when they are exported. 
  • These fields can be displayed in the Employee Profile or exported via the Personal Information User Export. 
  • These fields are not available in reports or in the Talent Search.
  • These fields cannot be updated via import (or via the Employee Profile), but they can be left in the Personal Information User Import file and the system will simply ignore them during the import.
  • Permissions for these fields are available under "Employee Data" in RBP (Role-Based Permissions), once they have been defined in the Succession Data Model. Only "view" permissions apply, since it is not possible to edit them. 
  • The placement will follow the process configuration from the Matrix Grid Reports, including custom weights. The very last placement available for the user is considered. 
  • The fields also display "Unrated" or "Too New To Rate" values, if those are configured in the Matrix Grid Reports.
