Language Support

Additionally, you should be aware of how a user's language preference can affect the search functionality for business unit and branch/plant records. See Section 1.2.2.1, "Language Support for Business Unit and Branch Plant Searches."

Before using the Quote Review and Release mobile applications (M42070 and M42073), you must verify the processing options setup for each application. The processing options for both the tablet and the smartphone applications specify the versions of the base JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications that the mobile applications use.

The system administrator must set the processing options for these mobile applications before the applications are made available to end users.
