  • The “approved” macro-state changes and automatically cancels the “under construction” macro state. The date is then displayed in the fields of the macro-state concerned.

  • Each sub-budget is then impacted and the “approved” state will then be propagated on all of his family.

  • Each macro state “under construction”, “approved”, “closed” and “canceled” modified from the parent budget screen propagates in cascade over the entire budget hierarchy.
