Requirement is to not trigger a worklfow on submit of time sheet when the recorded hours are same as that of the work schedule.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Time Sheet

Reproducing the Issue

  • Work Schedule of employee is 8 hours per day.
  • Workflow Rule has been assigned to the object 'Employee Time Sheet'.
  • In the Time Sheet UI, the employee records 8 hours every day and clicks on Submit. It is then sent for workflow.
  • Requirement is that only if there is a deviation of recorded hours from work schedule, the workflow sholud be triggered.


  • There is a field in the ‘Employee Time Sheet’ object (introduced in 1811) named ‘Full Work Schedule Covered’.
  • If the value of this field is set to ‘Yes’ then it means that the time sheet is as per the work schedule and no deviations.
  • So in the workflow rule assigned to the Employee Time Sheet object, add a condition that IF ‘Full Work Schedule Covered’ is equal to ‘Yes’ THEN no workflow else trigger a workflow.
  • More details of this field(s) can be found in the KBA 2711871 - Employee Time Sheet Object Attributes For Data contained In Time Sheet .
