2278219 - Variable Pay:Currency View in Variable Pay module not defaulting to Employee Local as designed

Symptom

The forms are displayed in functional currency despite the Local currency being set as the default currency in the configuration (baseCurrencyView="localCurrencyCentric").

Environment

Compensation and Variable Pay

Reproducing the Issue

1.Launch VRP worksheets

2.Go to Compensation

3.Open the form and the form is in functional currency(even when opening the first time)

4.The baseCurrencyView attribute was set to Employee Local Currency so the default view should be in local currency

 

Cause

The baseCurrencyView attribute is not used to control the display of currency view on VP form.

It only controls in which currency are you importing basis and other custom fields.
