2902773 - ARCHIVED Date Difference in Workflow Activity Log and Workflow Participants Screen.


Some times we observe approval date difference in the Activity section and workflow participants screen of Workflow Details page, What is the reason for this?

Image/Data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Cental - Workflows


Workflow Activity section shows dates in user's time zone (timeZone field in UDF), where as participant screen shows dates in user's local browsers time zone. Consider below example.

User Time Zone : US/Eastern

Browser Time Zone : IST

Now when we change the browser time zone to Australia / Sydney, In Workflow participant screen March 12 will be diplayed instead of March11.


At present this is working as designed. Engineering team is planning to change the behavior in upcoming releases. Please follow the below reference numbers in the upcoming release information for more details.

ECT-128274 - Approval Date in the Participant screen will be same as in Activity Log (Planned release - b2005).

ECT-131503 - Delegation and Escalation dates will be fixed (Planned release - b2011).

Note : If any changes in the release schedules then this KBA will be updated to reflect the latest information.
