Each Beneficiary module release provides improvements related to mobility activity business rules, correction of business rules, adding new rules or remove others. This implies that mobility activities previously completed may not comply with the updated rule(s) enforced or changed after a release.
After each new release of Beneficiary module, an automatic revalidation of mobility activities in projects is done, which may result in changes to the status of mobility activities or to the calculated budget. These changes can happen in any project, except when it is locked/read-only.
The Revalidate Mobilities functionality available in Beneficiary module allows beneficiaries to actively check all mobility activities of their project that were last saved before the current release. This check will confirm whether the mobility activities comply with the current rules or whether they need to be updated.
Mobility activities previously completed may be affected by the updated rules, so it is important to revalidate them latest before submitting the final report.
For details on managing mobility activities in your project, please see the page Add mobility activities to projects.
The illustrations in the provided Wiki pages are for consultation purpose only and may not always reflect the latest implementation.
In your project, access the list of mobility activities by selecting Mobility Activities from the Content menu. The list of mobility activities available in your project opens.
See the page List functionality in projects for additional information on the list functionalities, such as Search, Filters and the Bulk Actions.
Also note the information message displayed on top of the mobility list, providing information on the Revalidation Mobilities functionality. Clicking on the displayed in the notification opens a pop-up window containing information guidelines for the revalidation of mobility activities.
The Guidelines pop-up can be closed by clicking on Close.
Click on the Revalidation button, displayed on top of the list, to access the Mobility Revalidation screen.
The Mobility Revalidation screen opens, and in our example, as no revalidation of mobility activities was yet done for the project, the button Revalidate mobilities (1) is available and no information is displayed in the List of Revalidations (2).
If revalidation has been previously completed, or there are currently ongoing revalidations for the mobility activities, the screen displays, the Request new revalidation button (1) and the List of Revalidations (2).
To start the revalidation of the mobility activities in your project, click on the Revalidate mobilities button.
A confirmation pop-up window opens, asking you to confirm the action. Click on Yes to continue or click on No to cancel the action.
A success message displays, informing you that the revalidation of mobility activities has started and to check later on the outcome.
In the List of Revalidations, the initiated revalidation displays, initially it will be in status Pending.
If there are ten or less mobility activities in your project, the revalidation of mobilities is done immediately. For more than ten mobility activities, the process will take longer, depending on the amount of mobility activities in your project.
To refresh the List of revalidations, click on reload, available in the header row of the list.
When the revalidation is complete, the Status of the revalidation displayed in the List of revalidations changes to Done. In addition, the columns contain the following information:
If the status of a revalidation displayed is Failed, an error occurred during the revalidation. Please start another revalidation.
In our example, a total of 86 mobility activities where processed, of which four had a change in the budget and two had a change in status as a result of the revalidation. Click on the view more button to view the Revalidation details, containing the Summary for revalidation and the List of impacted mobilities.
The Revalidation details screen opens, with the:
The Summary for revalidation displays the following details:
The List of impacted mobilities displayed below the summary displays, initially, all processed mobility activities, providing the following details:
A status change does not necessarily result in a change of the total budget and vice versa.
Here is an example of the revalidation summary, where 86 mobility activities where processed, with two changed statuses and four changed budgets. Before the revalidation, no mobility activities were in status Draft and 86 were in status Complete. After revalidation, two mobility activities are in status Draft, and 84 are in status Complete.
The list of impacted mobilities is filtered to show only the mobilities with Budget changes, by clicking on the hyperlinked number for budget changes in the summary. The column Total Budget change displays the calculated values before and after revalidation, providing an overview of the calculated total for each mobility activity. In our example, for all displayed mobility activities, the total calculated budget after revalidation is lower than before.
To return to the list of all impacted mobilities, click on show all.
In this example, we filter the List of impacted mobilities to display the ones where the status was changed as a result of the revalidation. Two mobility activities are displayed in the list and for each, you have the hyperlinked number of invalid fields after revalidation displayed.
We now click on the hyperlinked number of invalid fields of one of the mobility activities for which the status changed from Complete to Draft. A pop-up opens, displaying a list of fields that must be checked and updated in the mobility activity details.
In our example, for all displayed fields the required values are missing in the mobility activity details. Click on the x in the top right corner of the pop-up to close it.
The mobility activities in status Draft must be checked and updated. You can click on the update option of the mobility activity to open its details in edit mode.
You can also, at a later stage, open the mobility activity details from the list of mobility activities in your project to make changes or use the mobility export and import functionality, where available, to complete the draft mobility activities.
Only mobility activities in status Complete are taken into account for the calculated Reported Budget in a project. See Budget in projects for additional information.
You will not be able to submit the Final Beneficiary report for a project if any draft mobility activities are available in your project. Before the Final Beneficiary report can be submitted, draft mobility activities must either be completed or deleted from the project. See Manage the final beneficiary report for additional information.
