SuccessFactors Job Profile Builder side effect when using it for Recruiting

I’ve been implementing SuccessFactors for many years, but only a few times for Job Profile Builder (JPB). But I’m proof an old dog can learn new tricks!

For anyone implementing Recruiting and using JBP to populate Job Descriptions and data, I think this little known fact is very important to know for any customer who already has Performance or Development and may be using Coaching Advisor or Writing Assistant (WACA).

It turns out that enabling Job Profile Builder (JPB), which is very useful for Recruiting requisitions, eliminates the ability to update WACA content in Admin tools. This might upset some customers who are editing their WACA content.

However, even though your admin links are gone for updating coaching advisor, it is still possible to get the content updated through export and import in provisioning. As long as you do not change the library name or GUID IDs, updating the WACA content in Provisioning doesn’t affect your JPB mappings or competency name, description, or behavior changes completed in admin tools.

Hope this helps! –Margaret 🙂
