> Cross-Entity Rules Supported for Job Information Change
The execution of cross-entity rules was not supported in the past. That implies that after performing a change in job information for example, if a change in another entity like
Compensation Information, the other entity would need to be updated manually. With this release, SAP SuccessFactors is adding the option to update the other entities with an onSave business rule.
Pay Grade was updated in the Job Information portlet. Then, Compensation and Pay component recurring should be changed manually in the compensation portlet.
After saving the changes in the Job Information portlet, now, we can configure a cross-entity rule to create the new compensation entry which contains the updated Recurring Pay component.
Reference Number: ECT-158036
Important Note: This new functionality is only supported between Job Information and Compensation, Recurring Pay Component, Non Recurring Pay Component, Job Relationships and Employment Details.
For Time Management (EC Time Off and Time Sheet), the 2021H1 release is really focused on Time Sheet improvements.
> Time Sheet: Clock in Clock out
This feature allows the integration of external time tracking services with EC Time Sheet. Employees can clock in & out with a supported terminal and have their time records automatically updated in EC Time Sheet allowing for a uniformized solution and employee experience.
This feature is still in its early stage and available for customers in the early adoption program, but it is nonetheless a good step forward for the EC Time Sheet solution.

> Cascade Personal Goals in latest Goal Management
Users can now cascade personal goals with the new version's improvements. Pulling and pushing now has a more friendly and intuitive look providing a better user experience.
This feature was built to:
> Achieve parity with the previous version
> Improve clarity around the alignment relationship between who cascades and who receives the goal
> Optimize the experience around goal and user selection
> Increase the goal editing efficiency when a user cascades more than one goal in a single transaction. This part is definitely better than in the older version.

> Ability to Map Employee Profile Fields to Employee Central Enabled Worksheets
SAP is hearing! They delivered the option to add fields set up in Employee Profile to our Compensation Worksheets where they are set up as EC integrated.
When you change EC Category to Employee Profile, the system displays Employee Profile fields in the EC Fields dropdown menu: for example, First Name, Last Name, Title, Date of Birth, Risk of Loss, Talent Pool, Reason for Leaving, and so on.

Just like the chicken or the egg paradox, since the announcement of Onboarding 2.0, many customers were hesitating between implementing Onboarding 1.0 and 2.0.
In parallel, the more customers are using the platform, the more SAP tends to prioritize and adds resources to develop the solution.
With the 2021 H1 release, the Onboarding solution continues to move forward to provide a solution that has feature parity with ONB1.0, while providing a uniform experience with the rest of the SF solution with ONB2.0.
> Compliance Forms for Onboarding 2.0 – Canada
The first wave of standard compliance forms is now available in Onboarding 2.0, meaning that these forms will be updated year after year by SAP based on regulatory changes. The first forms to be added are the TD1 form with the different variations per province. Please see the list beside.
