SuccessFactors build 1705
Reproducing the Issue
Initiate a workflow close to midnight when your approver is in an earlier timezone.
There may be other combinations that produce this issue, but this one is known.
If the initiator of the workflow and the approver are not in the same timezone, and the initiation occurs close to midnight, this can occur.
This is being corrected in build 1708 as per Jira ECT-28530
