HR Executives, Managers, and Super Admins, did you know that SAP SuccessFactors comes with built-in, out-of-the-box analytics to provide the data you need in real time? Let's take a look at the hidden (and underutilized) gems of of analytics that you have at your finger tips via Tiles and Dashboard. With Tiles and Dashboard, you can gain insight into your team and organization straight from the Homepage and drill down to get more details with easy user-friendly charts and graphs.

What are Tiles?

Tiles is standalone individual Youcalc Tile [1]. Each tile consists of a chart and has drill-to-details.

The Youcalc engine is an in-memory analytics and calculation engine pulling data from the Adhoc reporting framework. This allows the data to be 100% up to date (real time, with no delays).

A dashboard contains multiple tiles. Tiles can be combined into a full screen dashboard with many charts on the page that can be shared with different roles.
