Issue:
After upgrade to 15.3 ,there are inconsistencies on the investment team. The last_updated_date is changed to the last time the Time Slicing job processes the record.
The discrepancy is that the it shows the resource being the last_updated_by and causes confusion.
 
Cause:

The change was made in 15.3 for defect DE32956.

It is specifically related to the Time Slicing job updating the PRTEAM.prallocsum field while it was being audited by the customer.
 

Resolution:

This is the only column for which the fix will update the PRTEAM.last_updated_date.

Any team record changes, including allocations, are always made by the last_updated_by user and as such would be accurate.
PRTEAM.prallocsum is the scalar total value for allocation and while there may be a minor mismatch on the timestamp, the fact remains that the PRTEAM.last_updated_by user is the one responsible for the last user change to the team record.
