Description:

The slow performance is noticeable in a configuration with MANY departments with levels/hierarchy. The time increases as the hierarchy depth increases.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Login to Clarity as a Project Manager
  2. Home > Projects > Project General Properties page
  3. In the Department OBS field, start typing any valid unit name

Expected Result: Auto-suggest in Department OBS should find the department faster
Actual Result: Auto-suggest in Department OBS is taking too much time; this example took approximately 2 minutes to display the units

Solution:

WORKAROUND:

Click the 'browse' (binoculars) icon to select a Department OBS unit from the lookup browse window.
