2560808 - Who will be the sender of workflow notifications?


  • Who will be the sender of workflow notifications that are received by the intended participants?
  • How do I know who is listed as the Sender for workflow notifications?


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Cloud
  • Employee Central


  • When any workflow is actioned upon (commenting, send back, approve, decline), the intended participants receive email notifications as per the email notification template settings.
  • The sender of the email will be the person who has actioned on the workflow recently.
    •  In below sample notification, the workflow is approved by James Kwok and, hence, the sender name would be James Kwok:


  • The only way you can mask the Sender is by using the 'Single Sender' option from within provisioning
  • The Sender can not be manipulated or changed per the individual workflow
