ActiveControl has historically always pre-populated the Type and Group fields (and Path, where only one Path exists with a valid source system reflective of the Transport) on a Transport Form in the SAPGUI, based on an individual users previous field selection.
Some customers fedback that this occasionally resulted in Transport Form inadvertantly going to the wrong Approver, because Development and Functional Teams not setting the correct value on the Form. To avoid this issue, ActiveControl 8.2 introduces a global configuration option where customers can define whether they want these fields to be populated in the SAPGUI or not.
This auto-population functionality is now switched on/off via a new [Prepopulate Type, Group, Path in new transport forms from last used value] configuration option. This is a global setting that will affect all Transport Forms.
