3154744 - "Give a Badge" button missing from Actions - Employee Profile


"Give a Badge" button does not display listed in Header > Actions or in My Team tile > Actions.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to the concerning Permission Role;
  2. Go to "Employee Data";
  3. Make sure the "SF Badges" permission is enabled;
  4. Navigate to the targer user profile;
  5. See the Badges block is visible and you can add badges to it;
  6. Then scroll up to the Header;
  7. Click the "Actions" button;
  8. See that the "Give a Badge" button is not listed.

Same happens if an employee manager has the SF Badges permission enabled, and with the Latest Home Page and My Team Tile turned on, cannot see the Give a Badge button within the Tile's Actions button.


This is a known issue that has already been acknowledged by our Engineering Team.


The available workaround is to uncheck the box "" for the affected employees' role.

If this is not feasible on the existing role as may impact other permissions, it is advisable to create a separate role, grant just the SF Badges permission to it, adding as member all concerning employees and adjusting the target population as per requirements, but making sure the "" option is unchecked.

The permanent fix for this is planned to be delivered as part of the b2205 release.
