The recently deployed PeopleSoft version provides a new "Auto-complete" feature where the system suggests values for drop-down fields thereby reducing the need for clicking the search icon (magnifying glass) and searching valid values. This is similar to Google search engine's search box auto complete feature. IT has received feedback from numerous end-users that they would rather not use that feature. This will be in effect as long as you don't elect to change this option.
To personalize your login and disable the auto complete feature, navigate to the following page.
Change the Autocomplete Override Value to NO. This will prevent the automation of populated fields from recurring.
