Overseas Awards Release Notes 20240624

Return to Previous Step

To help Post HR manage the nominations and make corrections, ADG has enabled a feature to allow Post HR to return a nomination to a previous step. HR will always be able to return the nomination to the previous or return the nomination to HR. When the nomination is returned to a previous step, the approvals for only that step are removed. However, when Return to HR is selected, all approvals obtained after HR moved the nomination to approvers (either JCAC or Anytime Approvers) are removed. 

Step 1: From the left hand HR Area menu, select Ongoing. 

Step 2: Choose the award you want to change from the Ongoing list, you can choose Anytime or Annual Awards, then scroll to the bottom of the Nomination and select Return to a Previous Step.

Step 3: A pop-up window will appear, use the drop-down menu to select the option to return to the previous step listed. You will be required to enter a comment in the box, click Confirm Return when you are finished.

For more detailed instructions, click on the link to the Return to Previous Step Knowledge Article below.

Bug Fixes

  • An issue was reported and fixed where an FMO could double click the Sign off button and approve as both the FMO and the EXEC. This issue was resolved.
  • In the Your Last Comment field, comments from other JCAC members appeared. This is now correctly limited to the JCAC member's last comment.
