Set SF-182 Preferences - Activate Reasons

The Activate Reasons tab enables administrators to activate and deactivate the approval and denial reasons that are configured in SF-182 Reason Preferences. See SF-182 Reason Preferences. Active reasons appear in the Indicate Reason drop-down on the Approve/Deny SF-182 Request page. Approval and denial reasons are inactive by default.

To activate an approval or denial reason, check the box to the left of the reason. To deactivate a reason, uncheck the box.

Overwrite Settings

Select this option to overwrite custom settings for child division OUs. If you overwrite custom settings for child division OUs, the selected settings are applied to both new and existing child OUs. Any previously customized child OUs are updated with the selected settings.

  • If this option is unselected, then only the child OUs that do not have customized settings are updated, as well as any OUs that are added in the future.
  • A child OU that has not been customized always inherits from the parent, regardless of whether this option is selected.
  • An OU is considered customized if its preferences or settings have been changed.

Once all preferences are set, click Save. Preference settings are not saved unless you click Save. This returns you to the Preferences page.

Or, to set preferences for another SF-182 Preferences tab before saving, click the tab name and configure the preferences. Then, click Save.
