SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central


  • To prevent workflows from being stalled at a certain approval step, you can now specify whether a workflow step is to be automatically approved when the approvers haven't responded within a certain number of days.
  • To support automatic approval, a new background job type, Workflow Auto Approval, has been added.
  • You can schedule a recurring automatic approval job so that the system regularly checks and approves workflow steps that are qualified for automatic approval.
