Successfactors - Employee Central Time off

Reproducing the Issue

  • The Time type is set with the ‘Activate cancellation workflow’ as ‘Yes’.
  • The leave is raised without a workflow but when the leave is cancelled a workflow is triggered and approved, still the status of the leave(In Administer Time) shows as “Cancelled without workflow”.


  • This is a known issue.
  • The employee time does not have any information assigned that there was a workflow at all.


  • Remove field "Canceled By" (Since it is showing the employee who last approved the workflow).
  • "Approval Status" field : for canceled absences, always display the original status as "Canceled".
