Adobe Sign for SAP SuccessFactors: Recruiting

The SAP SuccessFactors environment is highly customizable, and internal processes will vary. The first half of this article follows one example for job requisition/application. Your steps may be different depending on how your environment is configured.

Job Requsition and application is a straight forward, two-phase process:

  • Configure the employee in SAP SuccessFactors
  • Sign the employment documents

Your internal processes and custom configuration of SuccessFactors govern the first stage. This part of the document may differ in your actual internal process.

The signature portion of the process is governed by Adobe Sign, and is subject to less customization in the SuccessFactors environment.

2. Access the Recruiting tab:

3. Click Create New to create a new job requisition:

4. Select one of the three options to create a new job requisition:
