What is it?

Manage Workflow Requests: Professional Edition is a new feature in 1705 where HR Admins can now in addition to the already existing 6 criteria,  filter person-based workflows by Company, Location, Cost Center, Business Unit, Division, and Department.
This does not work for hire & rehire workflows.

FAQ

  • This is not supported for Hire and Rehire Workflows

 

  • As per Q3 1708 Release updates, there was an update for Filter by MDF object in My workflow Request(ECT-68513). This should help us to filter the workflows as per MDF object.

This is not working leading to issues in filtering the workflows for approval.

> In order for the System to filter by Object, you must have created Request Type for "Change Generic Object..." such as Position and other MDF change.

Once you have such "Change Generic Object..." request type in the sytem, you will be able to filter by Object.

For example:

Where Request type = National ID > The resulting filter is Event Reason

Where Request type = Chang Generic Object... > The resulting filter is Object
