3233497 - Employees Receive Document Transfer Emails


A 'Trigger Document Transfer and Change Engine' email was sent to incorrect employees after a manager change.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. User processes a manager change for Employee 1
  2. User receives a 'Trigger Document Transfer and Change Engine' email for employees they didn't change


The system is working as designed.

When a user makes a change causing an HRIS sync job to run, a 'Trigger Document Transfer and Change Engine' email will be sent to the user listing all employees whose forms were transferred because of the change. The user doesn't have to have any relation to the employees in the email notification since the HRIS sync job picks up all employee records that need to be updated since the last HRIS Sync job ran.

Engineering will change the behavior of this email notification. This is tentatively scheduled for the b2211 release and you can review the changes in the What's New Viewer.
