2823966 - Is it possible to cancel a leave partially?


You are implementing time off workflows and you are currently configuring the cancellation workflow.

What you have noticed is that currently when you trigger a cancellation workflow, after it is approved than you see that the whole leave was canceled but you would like to cancel only part of the leave.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) - Time Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Proxy as any employee who has leave requested;
  2. Go to Time Off ESS UI and cancel the leave;
  3. See that a workflow is triggered;
  4. Approve all steps of the workflow;
  5. See that the whole leave was canceled;


Expected behavior


When you cancel a leave request you cancel the whole request and currently the system does not offer any means to partially cancel leaves.
