Update : GLOBAL APP ROLLOUT

With the release as of March 4th 2024, a new SAP SuccessFactors app will be available from the Microsoft Teams App Store.

You may choose to search for this app in Manage Apps and install this app for all your users in the organization to replace the old app.

This change is made to reduce your administrative chores in downloading, uploading, and upgrading app packages every time we deliver new features. It also enables users to explore the app themselves and increases exposure.

If you are already using the Legacy App, which was downloaded via SuccessFactors > Admin Centre > Work Tech Configuration Page, then we highly encourage you migrate to this new App.

Important: The previous legacy app, which is the custom SAP SuccessFactors App package (zip file) that you downloaded via the Work Tech Configuration page of the Admin Center will reach End of Maintenance and be Deleted as of the 1H 2024 release (May 2024), you will no longer be able to download that zip file or access that app after that time.
