SuccessFactors Report Center is now a one-stop place to gain access to all the available reporting tools SAP SuccessFactors offers. It holds the future of reporting, and going forward it will be “Mandatory” to access reporting tools via report center.

More Information about Report Center as a feature, it's availability, and planning of phased upgrade can be found over these helpful blogs (Are you ready for Report Center Universal Upgrade? and Report Center to Become a Universal Feature) published earlier.

Since Report Center holds every reporting tool within, it is important to simplify the user experience and it becomes even more important to have a rather simplified and easily understood terminology for the same.

2011 (2H 2020) release will bring in the below changes to the report type names and also, the permission names associated with these report types will also change effectively.

Old Name New Name
Report Table Table
Report Canvas Canvas
Report Story Story

2H 2020 Announcement for this change: here

User Permissions -> Analytics Permission-> Functional Permissions Report Canvas Designer Canvas Designer

Administrator Permission -> Manage Dashboards/Reports Report Story Admin Story Admin

Any action customers need to take after these changes?

No, these are universal changes and the old names will be automatically replaced with new names post 2011 release. There is absolutely no manual action required by anyone.
