Defaults Business Unit From The User Preferences Is Not Defaulting On The Search Record For The Grants Submit Proposal Page.

(Doc ID 2306388.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Grants - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Although a default Business Unit is setup in user preferences, the business unit field is blank when the user navigates to the Submit Proposal search page. The BU should default based on User Preferences on the Submit Proposal search page as it does for other pages, for example, Maintain Proposal or Generate Award.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Verify that a business unit default is set at Set Up Financials/Supply Chain > Common Definitions > User Preferences - Contracts page.
  2. Navigate to Grants > Proposals > Submit Proposals and note that the search page has a blank Business Unit


This reduces the usability of the application by ignoring user defaults.
