The Best Tool For Working With SAP SuccessFactors Files

In order to load mass changes into SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, we often need to work with load files. Using Microsoft Excel to maintain and adjust load files can cause chaos if you are not careful. In this video, I talk about the application I use to maintain SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central files in a way that avoids the issues that Excel can present. Best of all the application is a free, open-source application and is completely safe.

      Hi Brandon,

      This is a good video for demonstrating the generic CSV file formatting capabilities of OpenOffice compared to Microsoft Excel.  What would make it even more useful for full context would be an end-to-end demo of preparing a CSV file in both OpenOffice and Microsoft Excel and then loading into SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central to show the process and highlight potential issues for comparison.

      I would also be interested in knowing the main scenarios in SuccessFactors Employee Central for mass change file uploads.
