Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a route map that would have more than one step in Modify Stage that would be an Employee step:

  1. Launch form which relates to created route map.
  2. Via Form Route Tool, route the form from Employee step to the other step that would also be an Employee's step.
  3. The form is routed successfully; however, the employee did not receive Document Routing Notification.


This is expected system behavior.


  1. Both steps are Employee steps. At 1st step, the form is already in the Employees document inbox.
  2. If the form is routed to the 3rd step, form remains in the Employees in box, as the 3rd step is also Employee's step.
  3. Therefore, Document Routing Notification is not triggered for an Employee as the form was already in Employee's inbox.
