Is it possible to hide the details of approver for time off requests displayed under My Requests section of the Time Off Employee Self-Service (ESS) page?

Reproducing the Issue

1. As an employee, access Time Off Employee Self-Service page through any of the following ways:

  • Home Page: Click Time Off tile under the respective Home Page section where Time Off tile has been maintained
  • v12 UI: In Home page, select Employee Files from the navigation menu located on upper left section of SAP SuccessFactors application. From Public Profile view, select Time Off under Employee Files tab options
  • People Profile (PP3): In employee's People Profile page, click Time Off section to navigate to the Time Off block then click Go to Time Off link
  • Action Search: In action search bar located on upper right hand of the header section of the SAP SuccessFactors application, enter View my time off and select the action search result

2. In Time Off ESS page, scroll down to My Requests section. Details of the approver of the time off requests are shown below the approval status.

It is not possible to hide or remove the details of approver of time off requests under My Requests section of Time Off ESS page. By design, the approver information will always be displayed below the approval status of the corresponding time off request to show information as to whom the request is pending with and the person and/or group who approved the time off request.

  • If time off request is automatically approved, 'No Approval Necessary' is shown below the approval status of the request
  • If time off request is currently pending for approval or cancellation approval, Approver: Employee Name and/or Dynamic Role / Dynamic Group Name (depending on how the time off workflow steps are defined) will be displayed under the Approval status of the request
  • If time off request time type has multiple approval steps defined in the workflow configuration, only the current step approver where the request is pending will be displayed. Workflow approval chain will not be displayed.
