Determine the ChartField display template that the system should use for the designated component based on a permission list or user ID.

ChartField Display Templates are used to extend ChartField configuration to control the display of individual ChartFields on PeopleSoft Fluid components. It displays ChartFields in a consistent manner on PeopleSoft Fluid transaction pages across PeopleSoft products.

Users define a template for each unique type of ChartField display that is needed. When adding a new template, the active ChartFields are displayed according to the ChartField configuration. If the ChartField configuration is modified, for example the ChartField is inactivated, all existing templates are updated as part of the ChartField configuration.

Note: As of PeopleSoft Image 22, the Book Code ChartField is supported in the ChartField Display Template for system maintained and user defined templates.

Use the ChartField Display Template page (CF_DSP_TEMPLATE) to set up ChartField display options.
