Can I get an explanation as to what the "Defer Decision" action does to the application? Does this reflect on the OAAP on the applicant's application status? Thanks!

Hello Zhane, The Defer Decision is a delivered value, and using the action would be based on your local business process. If you add a DDEF row to an application, you would need a query to identify and manage those applications. If a student applied and wanted to defer their admit term (after matriculation), you would be able to perform that action on the student's program plan without adding a DDEF row.
