Currently many companies are interested learning how they can minimize the manual data entry for HR records. Using the automatic mass change function provided by SuccessFactors Employee Central, users will make fewer errors while maintaining data, especially for HR records. Learn the details about how you can perform mass changes on employee records for job relationships, how to mass change the relationships at multiple levels in the hierarchy, and how and when to use this requirement to help you do your job better, faster.
Key Concept

The mass change functionality offered by SuccessFactors Employee Central is a process that allows you to change the job relationship values or records in bulk. You have the ability to process a mass change of the employee’s master data at the organizational level during organizational restructuring. This process avoids users having to change or modify the values on individual records manually. You are not only allowed to change the relationships at one level up but are allowed to make changes at up to two levels (direct reports and second-level reports) and for the whole team.

SuccessFactors Employee Central provides mass change functionality to change the job information and job relationships’ objects. An employee’s relationship to the HR manager or administrator or any custom relationships apart from a direct manager is maintained at the job relationship portlet level. In general, it is common for many employees to share the same HR manager or administrator, and the mass change functionality helps users because it enables them to make changes in bulk instead of having to update employee records individually.
