As of 2H 2023 you can now monitor the delivery of email notifications using Stories in People Analytics. For more details see KBA 3387145 - Reporting on the delivery of System Email Notifications

Kindly check if you have this feature enabled and see if this satisfies your requirement.

Alternatively, you can create a ticket with Product Support o obtain log details of a specific email using component LOD-SF-PLT-NOT and provide ALL of the following:

    • Email notification subject
    • Email id of the receiver or domain (e.g.
    • Date and time when the email was received

Please NOTE: 

  • We only have 90 days of logs available in the system.
  • The information we can retrieve and confirm from the logs regarding emails is very limited.
  • It is not possible to generate a log for all emails sent from SuccessFactors.
  • It is only possible to request these logs for single emails/single recipients. We cannot provide details for hundreds or thousands of emails sent to hundreds or thousands of users.
  • Checking the logs is a manual process to confirm what may have triggered an email to a specific user; it is not an audit or report on every user who received a certain email.
  • Also, due to security concerns, it is not possible to add an admin user as "BCC" for all the emails sent from SuccessFactors for tracking purposes. 

If you think email logs/audit reports would be a good feature to have, you can create an enhancement request on our ideas page at More information on enhancement requests is in 2090228.
