20D update isalmost there to get released. Few of our customers will get it as soon as first week of November, in every release Oracle introduces new features and enhances existing features.
Below are the top 5 features that impressed our consultants at SOAIS:
1. NEW ENHANCEMENTS TO TRANSACTION CONSOLE
The Resubmit feature has been further enhanced to notify initiator. Now notification mail gets triggered to transaction initiators transaction has been re-submitted and also checks whether the transaction that is being resubmitted has any conflict with other transaction which is in pending or completed state.Administrators can now specify the archive period frequency for each transaction type in the Approval Rules tab.
2.QUICK ACTION ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL PERSON INFO FOR EMPLOYEES, CONTINGENT WORKERS, AND LINE MANAGERS
In HCM Cloud release 20D we can configure additional person information page. This can be accessed by the employees, contingent workers or line manager.
Currently this page is only visible to HR because some user may have configured person Extensible Flexfields (EFFs) that may be sensitive in nature. So page is not displayed out of box. Using Transaction Design Studio (TDS) you can create a rule to determine the person EFF contexts to be displayed for a role.
3.POSITION MANAGEMENT: CREATE RECRUITING REQUISITION DURING POSITION CREATION
Now you can create (Oracle Recruiting) requisition along with the new position from the Request a New Position page or the Duplicate Position action from the Position Details page. Once position is approved then only the newly created requisition gets processed.
4. SECURE ACCESS FOR WORKERS WITH MULTIPLE ASSIGNMENTS
The current out-of-the-box behaviour supports person-based security access, which means a user having access to a person has access to all assignments and personal information for that person. In this update, Oracle managed to change this. A more detailed blog is also there in SOAIS blog on this.
5. ENHANCED TRANSACTION APPROVALS SUPPORT MULTIPLE ASSIGNMENTS IN GLOBAL HUMAN RESOURCES
Approval transaction rules in Global Human Resources have been enhanced to support workers with multiple assignments. Now you have the flexibility to use the management hierarchy of the worker’s assignment for which the transaction is initiated. This is especially useful when workers have multiple or non-primary assignment transactions.
These approval transaction processes now support multiple assignment notifications like:
- Administer Individual Compensation
- Administer salary
- Manage Areas of Responsibility
- Person External Identifiers
- Manage Salary
- Salary History
