  • If there is no approval process, no workflow to trigger after a change, it will be the initiator who will appear as the user in the last modified by

  • If there is a workflow, before the workflow is approved, it will show the initiator’s name

  • After the approval process, it will be the final approver who will appear as having made the change


  • For MDF objects, the last modified by will always have the initiator details unless, any of the approver has the option to “Edit” during the process.
  • If the approver has the option to “Edit” during the process, the last modified by will show the approver’s name who edited the object.
  • This is an expected behavior in MDF
