Issue:
Why is the field 'Last Updated Date' on the PRTEAM table being updated to be the time that the Time Slicing job  last updated the record?
This causes confusion to the users because they did not make any changes to the Project Team records on the date specified.
 
Cause:

The 'Last_Updated_Date' in the Project Team (PRTEAM) record is updated by the Time Slicing job when it completes the processing of the record.

The completion date and time of the Time Slicing job replaces the prior Last Updated Date of the time the actual user that made the change.

Example:  
1. user(aaaa) updates the Team tab for user(bbb), and Last_Updated_Date = 8/1/2018
Last_Updated_by still reflects user(aaa)

2. On 8/2/2018,

user(aaa) is no longer active but then user(ccc) makes a change to the calendar for user(bbb).

The next instance of the Time Slicing job willl update the PRTEAM record with Last_Updated_Date = 8/2/2018

 

Resolution:


This is reported as defect DE44708. The resolution is targeted for the next release/patch.

The PRTEAM.last_updated_date will no longer reflect the date stamp that the Time Slicing job last processed the record.
This defect was caused by a fix implemented in version 15.3.0.
