When a user clicks the drop-down menu in the Appeals column on the Appeals tab of a Constituent record, the list of available appeals in the drop-down menu is based on the format selected in Tools, User Options, Records tab, Appeals, Appeal format.

  4. Click OK.
  5. Reopen the constituent record in question and go to the Appeals tab.
