3230047 - Future-Date hires from Onboarding becomes active in UDF - Onboarding


  • Future dated hire has been converted as internal employee prior to target date.
  • Candidates with hire date in the future show active in the User Directory File (UDF)


  • SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in to the instance
  2. Go to Employee Export
  3. Download a new user file
  4. See that the new hire has been set as active although it is future-dated hire.


  • The issue is happening because the candidate's Job Information does not have the timezone associated.
  • As a result, the future dated hires are also getting converted to internal hire once the Manage Pending Hire process is completed.


To avoid this from happening to your future-dated hires, configure the TimeZone automatically.

Follow the below KBA on how to do it:
