If you are not familiar with SAP Notes, they are defined as small corrections delivered by SAP before releasing a support package. The SAP Notes, each containing the correction instructions, can be implemented in the system using the SNOTE. SAP Notes (previously referred to as OSS) include useful information from SAP’s Knowledge Base that specifically address known issues in the SAP system. They are continually updated as SAP customers report issues in their SAP system, and SAP then releases Notes with detailed instructions on how to fix/address the issue.
Customers deploying SAP SuccessFactors solutions may wish to leverage additional third-party vendors, as needed, for any supporting functionality. To learn more about working with third-party software, and to ensure that your selected vendor of choice has a solution certification by SAP, see this blog “The difference between an SAP Certified Partner and an SAP Certified Solution?”
SAP is also maintaining a Note, 2167337 - Addons available for Employee Central Payroll (valid SAP credentials required) that details third-party software that is permitted to run on Employee Central Payroll. Listing on this Note is a commitment from SAP that the components released for usage can be used with Employee Central Payroll.
Not all SAP or partner components which are available for On-Premise HCM are allowed to be used in Employee Central Payroll. Please be sure to review this Note before proceeding.
