SAP SuccessFactors has rolled out new innovation in the first 2020 release, including universal updates to the admin interface (UI) within the Learning Management System (LMS). In this blog, we'll cover what to expect, commonly asked questions regarding how to navigate between the new and Flash-based UI and required next steps.
We understand this improvement may necessitate change management activities. Please note that you will be able to navigate to either the current or new admin interface for six months. Key milestones and dates are as follows:
HTML5 & Flash Concurrently Available
The HTML5 Learning Administration interface will be available alongside the existing interface.
By the dates below, only the HTML5 Learning Administration interface will be accessible and, to avoid disruption, learning content should be built with non-Flash technologies.
Note: Validated Learning customers key dates include:
VSaaS customers must only use the new admin UI for validation as the Flash-based UI will not operate shortly after the production release as browsers drop support for Flash at the end of 2020.
1) Review resources available in the SuccessFactors Community, develop a change management plan and understand how to navigate the new Learning Administration interface coming within the First Half 2020 Release.
2) Identify and update Flash-based content created by your organization by November 20, 2020.
Will the courses still work properly when you remove Flash dependency?
The Learning Administration Application is independent of Flash Content. Content that was authored in Flash must be re-authored as browsers may not support the content launch. As SAP does not touch any content owned by customers, customers must work with their content authors. If you have the source content, you may be able to re-export your Videos/Scorm packages as HTML5 based content. For PCM (Premium Content Management) Customers: Customers' Content Representative may assist with this task as they manage customers' content. See this KBA (S-ID Req).
3) Create a project plan to update your Flash based content to a non-Flash based version of content. Please also account for any users who may have launched, but not completed, Flash-based content.
Heads up! There are a plethora of terminology changes in an effort to align across the SuccessFactors Suite. Read more about the Learning Administration Terms here.
