Right to Return Composite Data Model Upgrade Scripts Now Available

With the First Half 2021 release, the Right-to-Return upgrade is now available. We strongly suggest customers currently using the legacy Right-to-Return composite data model should upgrade their instances via the Upgrade Center, as soon as possible. This provides the ability for each customer to move to the non-effective dated MDF Right to Return data model. By performing the upgrade on your own, you will have greater flexibility in your planning, testing, and implementation. While not currently scheduled, it is likely to be a universal upgrade in an upcoming release if customers have not upgraded themselves.

For more information, please review the Innovation Alert on the SAP SuccessFactors Customer Community page.
