EEX 9.2: Several Usability Inconsistencies and Error Message Have Been Detected at the Fluid Travel Authorization Creation/Submission Component (Doc ID 2895615.1)

Last updated on MAY 17, 2023

Applies to:

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


Several usability problems have been detected when Employees are creating and submitting a Travel Authorization transaction via Fluid User Interface. Here below are clarified:

  1) Problem #1: Travel Authorization Lines with a zero/blank amount are being automatically deleted by the system, even though submission has not completed, contradicting the delivered expected functionality in PeopleBooks.

        " When you submit a travel authorization using PeopleSoft Fluid, the system does not save lines if there is no value in the Amount field. For example, if the Automobile Rental line has no amount, then that line is not saved for the travel authorization and is removed when the submit is complete. "

  2) Problem #2: The system triggers the Submission Confirmation warning message upon clicking the DONE button at the Line Detail sub-page, instead of when the SUBMIT button is selected.

  3) Problem #3: The system allows a Travel Authorization to be submitted for approval, keeping transaction lines with a zero/blank amount, instead of automatically removing them once submission is complete.

  4) Problem #4: An Error Message is triggered when the Travel Authorization back-button is clicked once the transaction has been submitted for approval
