Setting up System Options in Property Manager

System option set up is the first and the foremost
step while implementing the Property Manager without which no further
activities can be performed in Property manager. Property manager
is a multi org access enabled module and setting up system options helps
customize the Oracle Property Manager environment for each
operating unit. System options determine your ledger and currency conversion
type. System options also control how Oracle Property Manager displays location
aliases, sends information to Oracle Payables, and Oracle Receivables, and
governs creation of leases and space assignments.
