3191272 - Date Format difference in MDF Blocks and EC HRIS Element blocks


  • In certain locales (e.g. German or Bulgarian), the date format in MDF blocks and EC HRIS element blocks are different

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - People Profile

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to any employee's profile using a particular locale
  2. See date format in MDF blocks
  3. See date format in EC Blocks (e.g. Comp Info / Job Info)


  • This is currently considered as a Product Gap due to the different date keys used in EC blocks vs MDF Blocks.


The team will revisit this requirement as part of one of the future releases. For the time being, this is considered as expected behavior until the enhancement.
