Error Message :

When using Period objects, activated via a script, the object name of the Period object is passed to the column description in the activities window.

When the Period object contains a title, it is passed to the description column in the activity.

When choosing the option recurring when executing an object and selecting a Period object without a title, the object name is not passed to the description column in the activity window.

In summary, the behavior is different when using a Period object in a script than it is when choosing it for recurring objects.

<Please see attached file for image>


Behavior should be consistent. If a title is present, it should be used regardless of how it was started.


Cause type:
Root Cause: If the period object contains a title use this one to the description column and if title is empty use object name to the description column in the activity.
