Financial Structure Request - 'From' Filter Is Incorrectly Showing 'Created By' Name In Fluid Pending Approvals Page (Doc ID 2791613.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2021

Applies to:

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


In Financial Structure Request, the 'From' filter is incorrectly showing the 'Created by' name in the Fluid pending approvals page instead of showing the last approver.

Given the scenario with 2 levels of approval required for Chartfield requests. After the 1st approval is done, the 2nd approver is seeing the drop down lists on the 2 filters, 'Created by' and 'From', to be the same. Instead, the 'From' drop down filter should show the last approver rather than the 'Created By' user.

For approvers who have dozens of fluid pending approvals it is necessary to be able to filter on 'From' user being the last approver of the transaction.
