2320435 - Overdue items listed by the Learning Expiration Email Notification


The "Learning Expiration Email Notification" automatic process (APM) has successfully run, and the "SuccessFactors Overdue Learning Notification" checkbox is unchecked; however, the Learning Expiration Notification email contains the overdue items as well as items about to expire.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to System Administration > Automatic Processes >
  2. Select Learning Expiration Email Notification >
  3. Uncheck the "SuccessFactors Overdue Learning Email Notification" checkbox >
  4. Run the Learning Expiration APM >
  5. The email notification received lists overdue items.


This is the expected system behavior.


  • The Learning system does not allow to disable the overdue items notification.
  • By checking and un-checking the box, you only configure the application to segregate the content into a different emails if required:

    1. If the "SuccessFactors Overdue Learning Email Notification" check box (in Email Notification Defaults) is checked, the system will send out two different emails:
      i. One for items that are going to expire (expiration e-mail)
      ii. Another one for expired items (overdue e-mail)
    2. If this check box (in Email Notification Defaults) is unchecked, the Learning Expiration Email Notification will contain overdue items and the system will send out a single email (expiration e-mail) for both expired and to-be-expired items
    3. This preference can be set using following steps:
      i. System Administration > Automatic Processes
      ii. Select Learning Expiration Email Notification
      iii. Set or unset the "SuccessFactors Overdue Learning Email Notification" as per the requirement:
