Core Functions

The Core Functions page in Admin Tools includes links to manage cross-platform settings that are core to every day talent management.

The visibility of this page and the links on the page are dependent upon the functionality that is available for the portal and the administrator's permissions. The permissions associated with each functionality vary based on the access requirements of the functionality. If the administrator does not have permission to access a functionality, then the link to the functionality does not display. If the administrator does not have permission to access any of the functionality on the product page, then the product page link does not display on the Configuration Tools page.

For portals with multiple languages enabled, the links in the user's language.
