Rule-Based Custom Tiles

Introduction

Everyone knows how Tiles on SuccessFactors Homepage are so important in day-to-day activities of Employees, Managers, HR’s, System Administrators so-on and so-forth.

Apart from SuccessFactors standard delivered tiles, every customer creates/configures homepage with multiple customer specific tiles; it takes a lot of effort to create Country versions of the same tile and permission them by creating multiple “Permission Groups” with users who can access those tiles.

This can be simplified by using “Rule-based” Tiles.

 

Prerequisites

  • Permissions to create Business Rules
  • Permissions to “Manage Home Page”

 

Rule-Based Custom Tiles

This blog will show the behavior of Custom Tile based on Company Code

First Step in the process is to create business rules to control the content of the Custom Tile:

Create two Business Rules one for “Company Code – 1710” and other for “Company Code – 6000”

Select “Custom Tile (Decision Rules)” – “Generic Rule Scenario” and create the above two business rules.

Business Rule for “Company Code – Best Run Company (1710)” as shown in the picture

Now create Business Rule for “Company Code – Best Run Mexico (6000)” as shown in the picture

 

Second Step in the process is to create a Rule-Based Custom Tile:

Go to transaction “Manage Home Page”

Click on “Add Custom Tile” and follow the wizard.

Enable “Rule-based” and select all appropriate Rules from the drop-down.

Prepare the Content for “Default” and for the Rules selected.

Once the content is provided for all the selected rules, save the configuration of the tile and save “Manage Home Page”.

Let’s Test the Scenario

Access/Proxy as “Best Run Company (1710)” user and click on tile “Rule Based Custom Tile” which is created in the previous steps.

Access/Proxy as “Best Run Mexico (6000)” user and click on the tile “Rule Based Custom Tile”

Access/Proxy as any other user and click on the tile “Rule Based Custom Tile”

 

Conclusion

This feature allows customers to control the content of the tile based on Business Rules and avoid creating multiple Country versions of the same tile and permission based on the “Permission Groups”.
