2529204 - Workflow not triggered when Importing Employee Time for leave request-EC-TimeOff


I have Imported employee time file with approval status as "PENDING". If it is "pending" workflow is not triggering to Manager or I cannot see workflow requesting pending under employee manager. You can check the employee's managers and proxy and check the to-do list for workflow request is not available.



Employee Central

Time Off


 Imported requests all have status Approved in the target system.


The import process does not trigger a workflow, so don't make any entry in the Status field of the import file.
