2795326 - Delegates are not receiving the comments when his/her approved step is sent back


You have noticed that the person who was delegated to approve a workflow is not receiving the comments made by the next approver if the workflow is sent back.


 SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) - All Versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a change for any employee that triggers a workflow;
  2. Delegate one of the steps to any user;
  3. Proxy as the Delegatee and approve the workflow to the next approver;
  4. Proxy as the next approver, add a comment and send the workflow back to the Delegatee;
  5. The Delegatee receives the step however the comments email are sent to the original approver only;


Expected Behavior


Currently the workflow feature does not support such scenario which means that the Original approver will receive the notification with the comments.
