3028933 - How to configure Icons? - Succession Org Chart


This page explains how to configure icons for the Succession Org Chart.


SAP SuccessFactors Succession Management


In the Succession Org Chart, it is possible to display icons in the position node representing the employee's Talent Flags, such as Risk Of Loss, Impact of Loss, Minority, etc. To see what the icons look like see the Wiki Page Succession Org Chart - Functionality Overview - Layout and Display Options. This week page points to resources on how to configure the icons and lists what standard elements can be configured as icons. 

When configuring icons for the Succession Org Chart, you will need to specify the "value" XML tag to map an icon to each value that the field can hold. What to use for the "value" XML tag depends on the field type:

  • Picklist fields: use the "minValue" from the picklist option. For example, in the picklist "impactOfLoss", the minValue is 1. Therefore, the "value" XML tag will be: <value>1.0</value>
  • Boolean fields: since boolean fields only hold the values "true" or "false", you need to use this value. Example: <value>true</value>
  • Gender field: the "gender" standard element is an exception. You should use the values "M" (male) or "F" (female) for this field. Example: <value>M</value>
