EEX 9.2: Activity ID, Category And Subcategory Chartfields Are Not Working Properly On Fluid Time Report (Doc ID 2286121.1)

Last updated on JULY 13, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Expenses - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Multiple issues observed with Activity ID, category and subcategory CFs on Fluid TR.

Steps

Setup:
1. Enable PC Integration Status Control on PC Installation options.
2. Enforce team option for PC BU ‘Project and Activity Team’
3. PC BU Definition – Category / Subcategory edit option set to Related.
4. Program Mgmt BU Option –
  Project Charging Level-
  Activity Costing Level - 1

  Charging Level for Time Report -
  All Detail Activities

Replication:
1. Create a new Project Definition for BU US001, ensure that the Program Management options are inherited from the PM BU Option setup.
2. Allocate KU0042 to the project.
3. Create 4 Activities for the project - ACT1, ACT2, ACT3 AND ACT4.
4. Make ACT2 and ACT4 as detail activities, as a result 1st and 3rd lines will become summary lines. ACT2 will be ACT1's child and ACT4 of ACT3. Use the indent icon.
5. Allocate KU0042 to ACT4 activity.
6. Create a Time Report in classic mode and select PC BU US001.
7. Select Project values from lookup.
8. Perform step 6 and 7 on Fluid TR.
9. Click on Activities dropdown on fluid TR.
10. Remove enforce team option from PC BU options so as to enable the user to select project on classic TR.
11. On Classic TR, select the project to which user was allocated.
12. Click on activity lookup.
13. Click on Details button on Fluid TR.
14. Check values in category and sub category dropdowns on fluid.

Actual Behavior

After Step 7&8:
No project in project id prompt in Classic TR / Project can be selected in fluid

After Step 9:
All activities visible to user on Fluid TR, Only user’s activities should be listed here since the enforce team option is enabled.

After Step 12:
Detail activities are listed in the prompt as the Charging Level for Time Reports option is set to All Detail Activities

But on the Fluid TR page, summary (parent) activities are populated in the dropdown.

After Step14:
Repeated values in Category and Sub Category Dropdowns on fluid TR.

Expected Behavior
Activity, category and subcategory field values should work properly on fluid as well as classic with all the options enforced by other products.
