Activity Maintenance Form
Activity maintenance form is a new form where the activities defined in the work breakdown structure form will be available after the user publishes the lines onto work breakdown structure. Activity maintenance is available as soon as the work breakdown structure is published for the very first time. Subsequently even when users edit the work breakdown structure form, the Activity maintenance form will be available for users to update the financial dimensions and activity code.
This form basically has two tabs and details of each tab are as follows:

- Activity number – Same activity number as in WBS – not editable by user.
