When you add, delete, or modify dimension members that are used in approval unit hierarchies, the affected approval unit hierarchy must be synchronized with the changes. When you display the list of approval unit hierarchies, the entry for each approval unit hierarchy specifies whether recent changes are reflected in the approval unit hierarchy. Use this procedure to synchronize dimension member changes with the approval unit hierarchy.
When you add dimension members, they are added as approval units only if they meet the criteria in the inclusion rules for the approval unit hierarchy. For example, if the added entity is a fourth-generation entity, and the inclusion rules specify generations one through three as approval units, the entity is not added as an approval unit. If the entity is a third-generation member, however, it is added as an approval unit the next time the approval unit hierarchy is edited and saved, or synchronized.
