Information in this document applies to any platform.


When accessing the Line Edit page for a Fluid Approvals Transaction from an email deeplink, there is no back button seen in the Universal Header for the user to get back on the previous page.
Upon using the browser's back button on the Line Edit page i.e. on "Approval Line Details", this will trigger a "Back to Header" button to appear in the Universal Header for the respective transaction.

By clicking on this new generated button, the following error is encountered:

3. Open the link and connect – Observe – No back button in the Universal Header.      
4. Click on Line number 1 – Observe – No back button in the Universal Header.       
5. Use the back button from browser – Observe – "Back to Header" button appears in the Universal Header.  
6. Click on “Back to Header” button and receive the error.
