3441750 - Show Me Author Feature - Show Me Author button not showing up in Performance Inbox


Show me author button is not showing up in the top right corner of the Performance Inbox after it was configured and enabled for the instance.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log into system/instance (Show Me Author feature is enabled in the system and configured accordingly)
  2. Go to Performance tab
  3. See behaviour where icon is not visible on the top right corner of Performance Inbox.


This is expected behaviour by the system when 'Enable the latest version of the My Forms page' is enabled in Performance Management Feature Settings.


Disable the setting regarding latest inbox UI in Performance Management Feature Settings if you want the Show Me Author button to show up in Performance Inbox (if it is configured in the instance)

Expected behaviour by system design as functionality was removed with patch. Implementation guide is under construction regarding this information to be included:
