The user stored in his settings that system shall use "recently used cost assignment". This means the cost assignments of travel requests or expense reports that have been created last 6 month.
However when a user never traveled, the system cannot not find any recent cost assignment, therefore the system works as expected showing the error message.


The User should change his personal settings.

  1. Go to Personalize in the top right corner of the screen
  2. Choose My Data
  3. Go in the Default Cost Assignment section
  4. Change from Recently used cost object to My cost center
