While testing the 'maternity leave' process in HR Administrator, the application created a workitem with a past dated 'Requested Date'. The end result of the past dated 'Requested Date' is that the system assigned the 'Waiting' status to the workitem. The only way for the system to actually send the item to the responsible person is to manually change it to 'Ready'.
Is this correct or is there a problem in either the HR Administrator application or the underlying workflow system or both? It makes sense to set the 'Waiting' status for feature dated workitems but not past dated ones.
