2088748 - Performance Management - En route Folder


  • As forms and worksheets move through a workflow, people in previous steps will retain a copy of the form or worksheet in their En Route folder.
  • What is an En Route copy of a form?
  • Why do I not see correct information when I open a form via the En Route Folder?


SuccessFactors Performance Management


  • When you receive a Performance Form, it can be found in your Performance Inbox folder.
  • Once you have completed your actions on the form, you send it forward to someone else's Inbox.
  • At that time you retain a copy of the form in your En Route Folder. This is called the En Route copy of the form.
  • This En Route copy is a snapshot in time and only contains information that you were able to see when the form was in your Inbox.
  • An En Route copy of a form is only a snap shot in time and will NOT show the most current data that another user has entered.
  • If you require a copy of the form with the most current information, then you will require that copy to be routed to your Inbox.
  • The exception is if the step is a C Step, where the form is not actually moved to a new person, but where everyone can see the current form from their inbox.


  • The exception to a snapshot in time is a Variable Pay worksheet.
  • Varpay does not support En Rroute copies of worksheets. (VRP-4074)
  • Traditionally compensation and variable pay worksheets do not leverage workflows as Performance Forms would.
  • Normally a single planner will manage a worksheet, so to date the product has not supported a snapshot for variable pay.
  • This means if you did add workflows/route maps to your varpay process, each person at each step sill see a live version of the worksheet.
  • Therefore planners need to understand that for varpay anyone in the workflow will potentially see all senstive data.
