Fields Available for Retroactive Application Tab

These are Document Type definitions that can be edited retroactively if need be. This means that should you decide to change one of these values for a given document type it is possible to apply the change retroactively to any documents of this type already created. For example, if you decided to change the Label of the Budget Adjustment document type you could choose that have that label change apply to historical Budget Adjustment documents in your KFS system.
