This is currently an expected behavior.

Resolution

  • The object that is displayed in step 1 and 2 are not the same.
  • When you are requesting a time sheet (step 1) you are updating the object 'Employee Time Sheet Entry'.
  • In the Workflow you are checking the Time Valuation Result which is a different object.
  • It is not possible for the system to automatically identify and populate the custom field in Time Valuation Result so it is not supported.
