Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.49 to 8.52 [Release 8.4]
PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Expenses - Version 9 to 9.1 [Release 9]
PeopleSoft Enterprise HRMS Talent Acquisition Manager - Version 9 to 9.1 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Created custom User List to use with ERApproval Process in FSCM and the Approvers are showing in Parallel, when Serial Approval is expected.

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
------------------------
On Preview, the Approvers box show on top of each other, indicating Parallel Approver processing.

Approver 1
Approver 2

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
---------------
On Preview, expect that the Approvers boxes will be side by side, indicating Serial Approver processing


The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Create User List App Package using custom logic.
2. Configure Process Definition with Dynamic Source Path
3. Include only 1 Step with custom User List .
3. Preview Approval, observe parallel vs serial result.
