Unbelievable, just four weeks before Christmas. Time is running fast. Two weeks ago, we delivered our Q4 SAP SuccessFactors release, which includes a lot of enhancements.

Last release we added personalized learning recommendations (enabled by SAP Leonardo), which was one of my favorite enhancements. With this final release of 2018, this functionality is now included in our mobile app and employees get a best-fit learning recommendation directly on their mobile device.

Some other enhancements to our mobile app:

- Employees can link their learning activities with their continuous performance management activities and achievements

- Employees can add, edit, and delete development goals

- Employee can easily enter their time worked

For teams of payroll experts, it is a challenge to share and distribute potential payroll errors for a root cause analysis, which results in work overlap. With this release such work overlap can be avoided by a centralized workflow. With this new team capability in our SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll solution it is ensured that the right people are working on the right things, and errors are resolved prior to the payroll due date.

Working as a recruiter you need to add candidates to a talent pool after they have applied. With our new auto-population this step happens automatically; based on search criteria assigned to a talent pool.
