Apart from items SAP SuccessFactors LMS provide flexibility to assign following entities to set of users having specific criteria such as Job Code “Executive Engineer.”
Now let’s see how Assignment profiles can be created. To create the assignment profile following points are recommended –
> User’s attribute should be checked.
> Learnings/ Training (items) need to be checked for readiness of assignment.
> Single Assignment profile can be used to assign more than one entity. Here I am covering assignment profile that assigns Items automatically to users.
- Check User Attribute – Job Code as Executive Engineer
To check the user attribute go to Admin–>Users–>Search–>Select User–>Go to View all–>check attributes.
Above screen will appear with a list of Users. Select a User.
