Adding external pay statement link or any other link in SuccessFactors Mobile application

Hello All,

We had multiple customer’s requirements to add external payslip link in Successfactors mobile application. There is no standard method to achieve the requirement hence we have figured a workaround which will help the employees to see the payslip from SuccessFactors Mobile application.

Here, the concept of creating a screen and adding a link in the screen is being used.

Steps to achieve this requirement :

  1. Create an MDF object
  2. Configure a screen for the MDF object (add a link inside the screen)
  3. Add the screen in the employee file.
  4. Open SF mobile app and click on the link to navigate to pay statement.

Create an MDF object from Configure Object Definition. Change the external code to ‘User’ data type.


Create a screen of the MDF object from Manage Configuration UI. Navigate to Manage Configuration UI > Select base object as Pay Statement (created in step 1).

Add a link on the screen by clicking on the ‘Add Link’ button.

Edit the properties of the link. Change the Link display text as Pay Statement. ‘Open In’ will be ‘Same Window’ and Enter the URL of pay statement (Adding as URL in this example).

Go to Configure People Profile. Add Pay statement section. Also, add a block of ‘Live Profile MDF Information’ and attach the screen created in the above step.

Go to any profile and you will be able to see the object created.

You can also check the same in the mobile application. Under profile information, you will be able to see the ‘Pay Statement’ section. Click on the section and click on ‘Pay Statement’ Link. Following are the screenshots from IOS and Android SF mobile application.





In the same way, we can add any external link which employees can navigate from mobile device.

      Hi Dharmin,


      This looks good. Payslip are dynamic i.e. individual employee and Payroll period. However how does an employee navigate to a pay statement for the period ?
