ETL9.2:Misleading Message For Template HC_TL_EE_REP_MODIFIED 

The email notification template looks like it has a mistake in it. It if for Email notification to employee if someone changes the timesheet. 

The request is generated from the NotifyEEofChanges function in the Funclib_tl_week.savebtn.fieldformula Which pulls from the

TL_COMMON.Notification.EmailNotification.OnExecute application class.

The template id looks to be HC_TL_EE_REP_MODIFIED Which is located in PeopleTools > Workflow > Notifications > Generic Templates the delivered notification sent out when a manager updates an employee’s timesheet is not correct.

This message is to notify you that another user has changed your Timesheet for {the name of the user that modified the timesheet}

 

It would seem to make more sense if it were worded:

This message is to notify you that another user, {the name of the user that modified the timesheet}, has changed your Timesheet.

 

I have also noted in the email below that within the template, Oracle has the description of variable %3 as EMPL_RCD when it really is the name of who modified the employee’s timesheet.

The only related Oracle bugs I saw on MOS had to do with no notification being sent out or a notification being sent out when the employee themselves changes the timesheet & Oracle changed the template as part of 9.2 Image 2.

 

 

REPLICATION STEPS

=================

1) Manager Modified the timesheet of employee.

2) Employee gets notification with below message

"This message is to notify you that another user has changed your Timesheet for {the name of the user that modified the timesheet}"

It should be

 This message is to notify you that another user, {the name of the user that modified the timesheet}, has changed your Timesheet.
