Reproducing the Issue

This issue can happen in several areas. In our example we use Appointments.

  1. Go to the Activities work center.
  2. Go to the Appointments view.
  3. For some Appointments you notice that the Category value is showing as code, not as description both when opening the object and when using the mouse-over.


You have restricted the Category values with Code List restriction and the value used in the object is not allowed for your user.


Allow the value within your Code List Restrictions.

  1. Go to the Administration work center.
  2. On the General Settings page click the Code List Restrictions link.
  3. Select your relevant restriction (search for Code to Restrict = Category).
  4. Add the relevant value(s).

The full list of values are shown in your Business Configuration.

  3. Open the Activities List.
  4. Go to the Fine Tuning Activity for Activities.
  5. Click the Maintain Categories link.

Here you have the full list of Categories as well as the option to create new ones.
