2952051 - Time Off and Time Sheet workflows appearing under Generic Object Actions request type


When trying to filter for workflows under 'My Workflow Requests', the employee time and employee time sheet requests appear under the option Generic Object Actions in filter 'Request Type'. There is no option like 'Time Off Requests' in this filter.

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 Central: Time Off
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: Time Sheet

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to 'My workflow requests' (Professional Edition).
  2. The 'Request Type' filter does not have the option 'Time off request':

  3. Instead Employee Time and Employee Time Sheet workflows come under 'Change Generic Object Actions':


Currently, this is a standard behavior. There is an enhancement request ECT-141186 to enhance the current behavior. Currently there is no fix date available for it. Once it is implemented, it will be included in release notes. You may call SAP hotline number or contact your CSM to know current status of this enhancement request.
