Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log in as approver
  2. Go to Project Management work center
  3. Click on Approvals view
  4. Note: Approval task is not listed.


The reason why the approval task is not sent is that the cancellation is not released.

  • Before releasing the cancelled time recording, the status is Pending Cancellation. The approval task is not sent to Project Management work center > Approvals view. 
  • After releasing the cancelled time recording, the status changes to Cancellation in Approval. The approval task is sent to Project Management work center > Approvals view. 


  1. Log in as employee
  2. Go to Self-Service Overview
