Deleted- RestFUL Services and ATOM Feeds sections

RestFul Services and Atom Feeds are not yet available for Release 10, so they have been deleted.

HCM Common Features

The following HCM common features include enhancements for Release 10:

HCM Data Loader

HCM Data Loader delivers a flexible and comprehensive bulk data loading solution for business objects across multiple Human Capital Management products. It can be used for data migration, ongoing inbound interfaces, and one-off bulk updates. It supports the bulk load of your configured descriptive and extensible flexfield data, translation data, tree hierarchies, person images, and Document of Record attachments.

Import Local File

You can now select a compressed zip file for HCM Data Loader processing directly from your local machine. The prerequisite to upload your file manually to the Oracle WebCenter Content server is removed.

Flexible Pipe-Delimited File Format

You can now simplify your inbound integrations and only include the business object components and attributes relevant to your use case. This is available, whether it is full date-effective history for data migration, or incremental changes for data maintenance. You can supply multiple business object-specific files in one compressed zip file and process them together. HCM Data Loader understands the order in which the business-object data must be loaded to ensure referenced data will be loaded first.

Secure Data Transfer

You can now optionally deliver encrypted compressed zip files to Oracle’s Web Center Content Server, secured by a specific HCM Data Loader account. The compressed zip file is then streamed from the Web Center Content Server and decrypted during import into stage tables before the multi-threaded process loads valid objects into HCM. Your compressed zip file is then deleted from the Web Center Content Server as soon as HCM Data Loader has finished streaming the file or you can choose to retain your source files.

Automated or User Managed Processing

You can now automate inbound interfaces using the Web Center Content and HCM Data Loader web services. In addition you can also control the import and loading processes using the new Import and Load Data user interface.

Status and Error Reporting

You can now review the progress of your files through the user interface, with comprehensive status and record count information. You will be able to:

Flexible Key Support

With this release four key types are supported. You can create new objects specifying your source system identifier and continue to maintain and reference that data in HCM using your source key. Alternatively you can supply the user key information, such as, Organization Name, Person Number, Absence Type, or you can use Oracle Fusion’s internal surrogate ID and Globally Unique ID (GUID).

Purge Person Data

Purge person-related data on your test and stage environments. The Purge Person process, available in the Diagnostic Framework, purges all person-related data for specified person records.

Upload of Assignment Records with Effective Dates That Are Later Than the Termination Date

Prevent the upload of invalid data using HCM Data Loader. You can no longer load assignment records that have the status ACTIVE or SUSPENDED where the effective dates are later than the termination date of the relevant work relationship.

Simplify Global Transfers Performed by Data Upload

Simplify the management of global transfers in data uploaded using HCM Data Loader with the addition of a new GlobalTransferFlag attribute to the work relationship record.

Enhanced Validation of Worker Records by HCM Data Loader

Ensure successful upload of worker records with additional validations. Whether creating a worker or updating an existing worker, you can now include only one row in the data file for each worker. In addition, when you load a new worker, the worker’s Start Date and Effective Start Date values must equal the start date of the worker’s earliest work relationship.

User-Key Support for Multirow Extensible Key Flexfields

Supply just user keys when loading and maintaining multirow extensible key flexfields using HCM Data Loader.

Global Human Resources

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources enables your organization to plan, manage and optimize all workforce segments using flexible and extensible best practices to realize extraordinary gains while ensuring compliance and increasing total workforce engagement.

Country-Level Address Rule

You can now control the address style and address validation for the country or territory you are implementing. You can set values depending on the selected country extension. You can use the Manage Features by Country or Territory setup task to control the address style and the level of address validation for the countries or territories configured for Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources. The address style selected will be displayed on the various pages where an address can be managed, such as the new hire, manage person and manage locations. The values you can set depend on the combination of the country or territory and the selected country extension.

Payroll

This section describes new features that are relevant if you use features such as elements, formulas, payroll definitions, and database items, even if you don't use Global Payroll.

Enhanced Element Template for Absences

You can now simplify your integration between Global Payroll and Absences by creating your absence elements, calculation components, balances, and formulas through the absence element template. Your answers in the element template will control which of the features the template will generate. You can also associate your absence element to an absence plan to facilitate the transfer of absence information to a person's payroll record. After processing the absence in payroll, you can view a person’s absence accrual balance, absence payments, and deductions on their statement of earnings and payslip.

Enhanced Element Template for Time Cards

You can simplify your integration between your time providers and your payroll application by creating your earning elements, calculation components, balances, and formulas through the new time card element template. Answers to the element template questions will control which of these features the template generates. The template eliminates the need to run the Create Time Card Calculation Components process. This feature only applies to user-defined legislations and predefined country extensions that have enabled the feature in this release. Customers in other countries should continue to create time entry elements using the Standard template and use the Create Time Card Calculation Components process to generate the additional objects required for calculation cards.

Simplified Bank Account Page

You can simplify the entry of bank account details for personal payment methods by choosing to use the new bank account page component. Use the Existing Banks and Branches profile option to choose between preloading bank details for your country and enabling users to enter their bank details.

Support for BI Report Submission in Payroll Flows

You can streamline your end-to-end payroll cycle by including Business Intelligence Publisher reports in payroll flow patterns. To take advantage of these you will need to add tasks to your existing user-defined payroll flow patterns or to newly-created patterns.

Quick Report, Process and Flow Submission

You can accelerate the submission of your HCM Extract reports, payroll processes and flows using the new quick submit option.

Flows: Multiple Tasks and Task Sequence Deletion

Customize your copied flow patterns using enhanced editing tools. Edit multiple tasks in a flow pattern by deleting tasks and by editing the task sequence.

Oracle Tap (Mobile)

Oracle TAP is how your reach your HCM applications while on the go. Oracle Tap can be reached by using any smart device, such as a smart phone or tablet, with web-browser capability.

Mobile - Language Support Enhancements

Oracle Tap mobile solution supports the same languages available in Fusion HCM Cloud with the exception of languages that read from right to left.

Mobile - Access Worker Social Wall

Within Oracle Tap you can start an Oracle Social Network (OSN) conversation. This feature requires that the OSN app is installed on the device because Oracle Tap uses punch-out integration with OSN to connect.

Mobile - Worklist and Notifications

You can now view and act on workflow tasks on the Notification/Approvals page.

Role Simplification

We have simplified the role definitions for the security reference implementation. We have eased the complexity of role administration and customization. The new model:

Simplified Reference Role Model

Take advantage of simplified role definitions in the security reference implementation. The simplified roles reduce the complexity of role administration. Every job or abstract role that existed in Release 9 also exists in the simplified hierarchy for Release 10, and each authorizes the same privileges. Beneath that level, however, many roles are eliminated, and the privileges they defined are assigned to a job or abstract roles either directly or as aggregate privileges. See information on the new aggregate privileges under Application Security below.

Applications Security

Oracle Fusion Applications Security provides a single console in which security managers and security administrators can review, design, and modify roles in Oracle Fusion Applications. It enables users to model applications-menu and task-pane entries for any role. Users can also manage certificates and review a set of security reports.

Copy Role and Inherited Hierarchy

You can now search for a reference role and copy either that role or that role and its inherited roles. If you copy the inherited roles, you will be copying their function and data security policies.

Analyze Roles by Role Category

You can now review and drill into roles and review count of role memberships, function security policies, data security policies, and user memberships by role category.

Aggregate Privileges

You can now view Aggregate privileges in the security console as a separate facet. An Aggregate privilege combines the function security policy with the relevant data security policies that cannot be separated. The security console will not allow you to include only the function security policy or the data security policy from an aggregate privilege. All aggregate privileges are predefined and can be assigned to any role.

Generate X.509 Certificate

You can now generate X.509 format digital certificates. You can send these certificates to a certifying authority for certification and import the signed certificate as a trusted certificate.

Generate Certificate Signing Request for X.509 Certificate

You can now search for X.509 certificates and generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for that certificate. You can send these certificates to a certifying authority for certification and import the signed certificate as a trusted certificate.

Import Certificates from Keystore

You can now import a certificate contained within an external keystore.

Privilege Discoverer Report

You can generate a report that lists every secured action a user is authorized to within a work area.

User Role Membership Report

You can now generate a report that lists each user's job roles.

Mobile - Security Enhancements

Oracle Tap now supports the following types of security capabilities: Federated SSO with a Customer’s External IDP, Configured with IP address to allow and/or block, VPN, Supports 2-way authentication with iOS, MDM solutions to secure the mobile device and/or applications, and Security Archive.

Absence Management

Oracle Fusion Absence Management is a configurable and flexible global solution that enables organizations to manage absences of their workforce. The framework provides ability to define both complex and diverse absence plans. It integrates with the Oracle Fusion Global Payroll and Oracle Fusion Time and Labor products and provides dedicated work areas for the roles of Administrator and Employees. Simplified user interface is provided for employees’ absence data entry.

Audit Framework Includes Absence Record Data

Absence records are now included in the audit framework. You can monitor changes to absence record data using the standard auditing tools.

HCM Extract Includes Absence Record Data and Accrual Balances

You can now integrate absence and entitlement information with third-party service providers and payrolls using Human Capital Management (HCM) Extract. HCM Extract can now include absence records, use of entitlements, and accrual plan balances.

Approval Framework Enhancements

You can now configure approvals for absence records using attributes of the absence record, the plans and entitlements, and attributes of your organization and employment structures. As part of an initiative to expand the capabilities for approval business rules, an optional, configurable field on absence transactions is added. This allows more flexibility in how approvals are routed within your organization. Other new fields in the approval payload enable more powerful configuration of approval based actions. Two new delivered functions enable you to check a worker’s manager and route approvals to approvers who are not in the standard approver list, such as the CEO.

Assignment Hours as Work Schedule Option

You can now configure working hours on a worker’s assignment as a work week. Use this configuration as a work schedule for absence evaluation rather than an assigned work schedule to streamline repeating work week schedules.

Schedule Half Days for Absences Measured in Calendar Days

You can now configure absence types that are measured in calendar days to allow entry of half day leave.

Override Payment Percentages for Calculated Entitlements

You can now allow Human Resources Specialists to easily handle exception cases when processing employee leave transactions. The Human Resources Specialists can now override the payment percentages for calculated qualified entitlements. Overrides can be monitored through audit functionality.

Absence Records for Contingent Workers

You can now improve work schedule planning by tracking availability and absences for contingent workers.

Attachments for Absence Records

We have streamlined attachments to absence records for Line Managers, Human Resource Specialists, and Workers. Attachments now include files and links. This functionality replaces Document of Record processing for absence records in earlier releases.

View Accrued Entittlements

Take advantage of improved accrual reporting. Employees, managers, and HR specialists can view current, historic and projected accrual balances.

Provide Additional Flexibility for Accrual Calculations

Configure robust formulas to factor in external sources, such as hours worked to determine accrual rates. New database items help manage mid-period employment changes that impact accruals.

Provide Rolling Forward Periods for Qualification Plans

Track plan entitlements under a rolling-forward period definition. US employers can use this definition to track time taken under the Family and Medical Leave Act.

New Attributes for Calculation of Qualified Entitlements

Take advantage of the new absence type and absence reason attributes and reference them in matrix-based calculations of entitlements. New configuration options are available for absence record linkage.

Configuration Option for Integration with Time and Labor

Enhance the performance of Absence Management by changing the default behavior that controls integration with Oracle Fusion Time and Labor. You can now disable this feature for customers who do not use Time and Labor and enable the integration at a later point, if required.

Improved Absence Certifications Process

Streamline the maintenance of certifications that serve as documentation records. Maintain these records even after an absence record is reevaluated.

Mobile - Manage Absences

You can now view a list of employee’s available balances and planned absences for the different absence types. Employees can also request an absence types and frequencies.

Benefits

Oracle Fusion Benefits is a complete, configurable and flexible global solution that enables organizations to successfully evolve and adapt to the unique needs of their workforce. The solution enables setup of traditional 'one-size fits all' plans to highly complex plans that selectively target different workforce segments with different benefit packages. Self-service capabilities present the user with an out of the box intuitive guided enrollment process with contextual information and embedded analytics.

Rate Start Date Rule

You can now simplify your plan configuration with the ability to control the rate start date based on the date of the first pay check on or after the enrollment start date without using a rate periodization formula. Use the new Pay Period Start, Before First Check, on or After Coverage Start rule for plans with waiting periods or flexible spending accounts, for biweekly, weekly, or semi-monthly payroll participants. For example, your enterprise enforces a waiting period of 30 days for enrolling new hires on biweekly payrolls into a flexible spending plan. You want the flexible spending account rate to start on the first day of the pay period that precedes the date of the first pay check on or after the enrollment start date. You hire a worker on November 1, 2014. The worker makes elections on November 12, 2014. In this case, the enrollment start date is December 1, 2014. The first check date after the enrollment start date is December 13, 2014. If you use this date rule, the rate starts November 30, 2014, which is the start of the pay period, in time for the next check date on December 13, 2014.

Extracting Benefits Data Using HCM Extracts

You can now take advantage of increased flexibility to extract enrollment data. The delivered Benefits extract will produce an extract in a fixed HR-XML standard, which you can send to carriers directly or through a partner service for further transformation and onward transmission. You can also create your own extracts with your own layouts using HCM Extracts utilizing the available Benefits database items.

Benefits Formula Evaluation

You can now streamline the testing of your formulas by checking if your formula works as expected for a sample participant without any impact on existing data. Previously, a full-scale plan configuration was required before you could associate your formula with an appropriate object. Also, you had to use the participation evaluation process and enrollments to test the formula. Now you can check to see if your formula works as expected before you complete your plan configuration, reducing errors during implementation.

Continuing Benefits Type

You can now report to benefits carriers with ease when enrollments of a participant or dependent end. Some life events, such as termination, end the enrollment of compensation objects for participants or their dependents. When you define a life event, you can notify carriers about the existence of end-dated offerings and any associated dependents. You can comply with any reporting requirement associated with the continuation of benefits coverage to its next phase.

Close Enrollment Process Rule

You can now take greater control over life events. Use the new Close Enrollment rule to control which life events must close or remain in the Started Status when you run the Close Enrollment process. You can configure the process to either close life events irrespective of their enrollment period end date or to close the events only if the enrollment period end date is met.

Filter Data and Suppress Life Event Triggering

The Upload Person Benefit Balances workbook now enables you to filter downloadable data by benefit balance and legal employer. The Benefit Balance filter is a choice list with available selections, and Legal Employer is a text-enterable field. The Upload Person Benefit Groups workbook enables you to filter by benefit group.

Both these workbooks now enable you to suppress life event triggering during data upload, preventing timeout issues. Select No to suppress triggering, or Yes to trigger life events on the participant's Person Life Events record.

End Date a Benefit Group for the Whole Batch

Use the new button on the Upload Person Benefit Groups workbook to end date a benefit group for the whole batch rather than end dating a benefit through the user interface, one employee at a time.

Compensation and Total Compensation Statement

Oracle Fusion Compensation enables your organization to plan, allocate, and communicate compensation using the most complete solution in the market. Make better business decisions using embedded analytics and a total compensation view of workers, regardless of geographic location or pay package components.

Workforce Compensation Supports Matrix Structures

You can now create up to three hierarchies for a single compensation plan to give multiple managers access to the same workers. There is a new task available in plan setup called Configure Hierarchies. You can configure the primary hierarchy, a secondary hierarchy, and a review hierarchy. The source of these hierarchies can be the primary line manager hierarchy, another manager hierarchy, a formula, a position, or a department tree. Budgeting, modeling and approvals remain with the primary hierarchy. The secondary and the review hierarchy enable other users to view compensation information for workers available to them, propose allocations, and save those allocations. The primary worksheet manager can either accept or overwrite the proposals. Global organizations can create a country based hierarchy that enables country leaders to manage the budget, and a secondary hierarchy that allows line managers to manage the compensation for their organization. You can also give a dotted line manager access to a worker’s compensation. Global settings are also enhanced with new configuration options to control notifications when manually delegating workers.

Hide Ineligible Workers from Workforce Compensation Worksheet

When workers are made ineligible during the compensation cycle, you can now remove them from the worksheet. There is a new configuration option on the Configure Eligibility task of plan setup that enables you hide or display ineligible workers, whether they are found ineligible by the start process, refresh process, or manually made ineligible.

Prevent Worksheet Submission Using New Alert Type

You can now configure a custom alert using a new alert type called Error Preventing Submit. Managers can plan and save their worksheets even if this alert is triggered. However, they must resolve the alert before they can submit their worksheets for approval.

Import Data in External Data Tables

A new task is available from the Compensation work area called Manage External Data that allows you to easily import data from a third party using Oracle ADF Desktop Integration. You can create different record types to identify the source or purpose of the data by configuring the lookup type CMP_EXTERNAL_DATA_RECORD_TYPE. From the Manage External Data page, you can open the spreadsheet template to populate your data and then import the data into the application. You can then select the record type and column name to use it as a default value in a workforce compensation worksheet column or as a compensation item in a total compensation statement.

Migrate Total Compensation Statement Using Functional Setup Manager

Services are available to support the migration of the total compensation statement definitions and all categories and items between database instances.

Enhanced Salary and Individual Compensation Approval Notifications

You can now configure salary and individual compensation approvals using the Manage Approval Transactions for Human Capital Management task available from Functional Setup Manager. This page offers a simplified configuration and edits for approval rules. You can still configure salary and individual compensation approvals from the BPM Worklist. You can also add comments and attachments to salary and individual compensation approval notifications to store justifications or other information related to the awards. Comments and attachments are available to all approvers.

Convert Worker-Level Budget Amounts Into Local Currency

Convert worker-level budget amounts easily into local currency using a dynamic calculation and new Currency Conversion Rate columns available for each component. Worker-level budgets are stored in corporate currency and sometimes must be converted to local currency for use in calculations.

Competitions

Competitions help managers engage their employees by providing an easy to use application to run competitions across their teams. Teams members competing with one another can easily see how they are doing real-time by viewing the competition leader board. Since competitions can be run on an individual or team basis, you get the added benefit of helping foster greater team building while focusing on business outcomes.

My Competitions

My Competitions shows you all the competitions you are participating in, whether you are the competition owner or participant. You can quickly see the latest status of any competition from the competition cards, which show you the vital information such as the competition start date, end date, and your rank in the competition. Additional summary information such as number of participants can be found on the backs of the cards.

Competition Leader Board

The Competition Leader Board gives you a single place to see how you and other competitors are doing in the competition. The leader board also lets you drill into score details and add new scores.

Quick and Easy Competition Creation

Competition creation is now made quick and simple. Managers have a four-step wizard to walk them through creating a completion by providing start & end dates, inviting participants, defining how you get points, and what the awards are.

Competition Details

Both Competitors and Competition Owners can now easily access all competition details from a tab on the Leader board. Owners have the added ability to edit competition details as needed. Owners can even add new teams and users to the competition from this page, without going through the competition creation wizard.

Global Human Resources

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources enables your organization to plan, manage and optimize all workforce segments using flexible and extensible best practices to realize extraordinary gains while ensuring compliance and increasing total workforce engagement.

Person Extra Information Effective Dating

The Manage Person Extra Information tab in the Person Management work area is now enhanced to provide effective date capabilities. You can now store or retrieve date effective, extra information data for a person. This feature also includes effective dating updates, corrections, and deletions.

Worker Assignment Hours by Day of Week

You can now specify a worker’s daily assignment hours where the start time, end time, and hours vary by the day of the week. The availability calculation uses the work week schedule to calculate the worker’s availability by day. The new Assignment Hours Details area is available as a window near the existing Working Hours field on the Hire, Manage Employment, and Create Work Relationship pages. Additionally, the Assignment Hours Details area is displayed in a separate region on the Change Working Hours transaction.

Position Management Enhancements: Defaulting of Additional Attributes from the Position

You can now streamline your employment processes by defaulting additional attributes from the position to the assignment. There are three attributes that can be defaulted from the position: Full Time or Part Time, Regular or Temporary, and Manager. These attributes are defaulted during the new hire process. They have also been added to the dialog that is shown when changing the position in the assignment. Full Time or Part Time and Regular or Temporary are the new attributes that help in capturing distinct information about the assignment.

Position Management Enhancements: Position Synchronization

You can now streamline your business processes by defaulting values from the position with position synchronization. You can control the attributes you want to be synchronized at the Enterprise or Legal Employer level using the Position Synchronization Configuration page. You can also configure if the user will be allowed to change the synchronized attributes in the assignment. In all employment processes the attributes that are configured to be synchronized will inherit the value from the position and are displayed as read-only. All incumbents automatically inherit the changes made at the position level.

Position Management Enhancements: Number of Incumbents

You can now control how many workers can be hired with the Number of Incumbents’ validation. This validation can prevent selecting a position in the assignment that does not have vacant Full Time Equivalents (FTE’s) or headcount. If overlap is allowed at the position, then a warning is displayed if the open FTE or headcount is exceeded. If overlap is not allowed, you will not be able to continue unless you select a different position that has vacant FTE or headcount.

Ability to Add Transaction Initiator as a Checklist Task Performer

You can assign tasks to performers either individually or through roles. Tasks can now also be assigned to the person who initiated the transaction, such as the action itself or the manual checklist allocation. In the Manage Checklist Templates the transaction initiator can be added as a performer to checklist tasks. When checklist tasks are assigned, the transaction initiator is automatically determined and the task is assigned to them. This helps in tasks getting automatically assigned to persons without having to manually identify the person.

Access Person Information While Working on a Checklist Task

The performer and the owner can now view the basic details of the person for whom the task is performed on a checklist task notification. Performers and owners can click the Person Contextual Action icon to view additional details about the person including department and location.

Manage Delay Duration of a Checklist Task

While defining tasks, you can set a delay duration that is used for calculating the planned start and end dates. The planned dates are calculated by adding the delay duration to the allocation date. Tasks get assigned on the allocation date, but tasks which have delay duration specified will have the planned dates reflecting the delay.

Restrict Checklist Template to a Localization

You can now select localizations when you are creating a Checklist Template. An HR Specialist or a Line Manager can choose a template that is applicable to all countries or a specific country to assign to an employee.

You can manage collective agreements by using the Manage Workforce Structures work area or by accessing the Manage Collective Agreements task from the Setup and Maintenance work area. You can link a person employment assignment or terms to a collective agreement in the Add Person and Manage Employment pages.

Ability to Define Seniority Dates

You can now define seniority dates and configure the rules for creating and defaulting seniority dates. You can set up seniority dates at the person, work relationship, and assignment levels. You can configure whether the user can override automatic defaulting of the seniority date by accessing the Configure Seniority Dates task from the Setup and Maintenance work area. You can view and edit the seniority dates of a person at different levels by using the Manage Seniority Dates page in the Person Management work area, provided the configuration allows you to make edits.

Enhancements to Global Transfer

In a Global Transfer and Global Temporary Assignment, you can now copy assignment information from the previous primary assignment. In a Global Temporary Assignment, you can now decide to make the new work relationship primary.

Approval Notification Personalization

Administrators can now personalize approval notifications. Using the Oracle Page Composer, they can selectively show and hide various components of the notification, including fields, labels and regions. They can also edit labels, color, and the page layout and add custom text and external links to the page.

Add Comments and Attachments When Submitting a Transaction for Approval

The initiator of a transaction can now add comments and attachments when submitting the transaction for approval. Initiators can provide relevant information, instructions, and related documents, along with the transaction to enable subsequent approvers to make informed decisions related to the approval.

Audit of HCM Data Roles and Security Profiles

You can now track changes to HCM data roles and security profiles. You can review any changes, identify who made them, and see when they were made. Internal auditors can now access the audit data in the Audit Reports work area.

Future-Dated Positions and Organizations

You can now control access to future-dated positions and organizations. Select new options in position and organization security profiles to include objects with future start dates. By default future-dated positions and organizations are excluded.

Shared Person Information in Person Security Profiles

You can now improve the performance of person search by specifying in person security profiles whether to include shared person information. By default, shared person information is excluded from new person security profiles.

Autoprovisioning for the Enterprise

You can now simplify autoprovisioning for the enterprise by scheduling the Autoprovision Roles for All Users process. The Apply Autoprovisioning button has been removed from the Create Role Mapping and Edit Role Mapping pages. This removal enforces the recommendation to use the Autoprovision Roles for All Users process.

New Approval Rule for Simplified User Interface Personal Information

Enhance the simplified user interface with a new approval rule for personal information changes. The new rule enables approvals to be applied when personal information, for example name details, contacts, passports and so on are changed. If you have configured the existing human task ‘ProcessApproval’ to something other than auto approved, then you will need to configure the new human task ‘PersonalInformation’ based on your requirements.

Worker View of Employment Information in Simplified User Interface

Provide workers a complete view of their employment information. Workers can now view their work relationship, contract and assignment details, and flexfields on the new Employment Details tab in the Personal Information work area. Additionally, workers can view their employment history on a timeline for employment related events, such as promotion and manager change.

Automated Reassigning of Pending Approvals and Correcting Invalid Supervisor Assignments

Automate reassigning direct reports and pending approvals of terminated or globally transferred managers by scheduling the Run Reassign Pending Approvals for Terminations and Correct Invalid Supervisor Assignments Process. The direct reports are reassigned to the manager’s manager. You can select to reassign any pending approval notifications of the terminated manager. The notifications are reassigned to the line manager of the terminated manager.

Directory Management - Incremental Refresh of Manager Hierarchy

Enhance the performance of the Refresh Manager Hierarchy ESS task by allowing the refresh to be run incrementally rather than performing a full refresh each time. You can schedule this to run every N days and base the refresh on supervisor changes occurring in the previous N days.

New Profile Option to Cache Person Images

Enhance the performance of pages that display person images (for example, organization chart) by caching person images. You must create the profile option PER_IMAGE_ENABLE_CACHING and set the profile value to Y at the site level to enable caching. You can choose not to cache the images especially if people at your site use kiosks to access the application.

Buttons Relocated to Ribbon in Mass Assignment Change Spreadsheet

You can now find the Check In and Verify Changes buttons in the Ribbon of the Mass Assignment Change tab in the Mass Assignment Change spreadsheet. These buttons were displayed in the body of the spreadsheet earlier.

Additional Option for Rehire Recommendation

Terminate a person’s work relationship now has an additional option for the rehire recommendation. The Recommended for Rehire field is now a list and displays an additional value of “Not Specified” by default.

Position Synchronization When Using HCM Data Loader to Load Position Changes

Run the process, Position Synchronization Job to update positions loaded with HCM Data Loader with the affected assignments. For performance reasons, position synchronization is disabled when using HCM Data Loader (HDL) to load position changes. This means that the load will not update the affected assignments even if position synchronization is enabled.

The process, Position Synchronization Job currently allows you to specify only one effective date. Therefore, the position changes will show date-effective assignment updates as of the same date even though the HDL load specifies position changes with different effective dates.

The above behavior is applicable only to HDL. If you use the Manage Position UI to edit the position attributes, the changes will normally trigger updates to the affected assignments.

Changes to Privileges for Predefined Roles

We have now streamlined security administration with the removal of inappropriate privileges from predefined job roles. The Import Worker privilege is removed from the IT Security Manager role. Only users with the Human Capital Management Application Administrator role have this privilege. Human Resource Specialists can no longer run the Send Personal Data for Multiple Users to LDAP process. Only users with the Human Capital Management Application Administrator role can run this process. Line managers and workers no longer see the Edit User Name action on the Manage User Account page. Only Human Resource Specialists can edit user names.

Person Management Access

For simplicity, the Person Management entry in the Navigator is now secured by the Manage Person Work Area functional privilege rather than the Search Person functional privilege. You may need to review custom roles that access the Person Management work area to ensure that they have the Manage Person Work Area functional privilege.

Send Pending LDAP Requests

You can now diagnose any problems with the Send Pending LDAP Requests process more easily with improved logging details. You can manage user and role provisioning requests smoothly as the process now checks that all requests are processed before terminating or timing out. You can submit the process knowing that the status of any previous run is accurate.

User Details System Extract Report

We have improved monitoring of user roles and accounts with the inclusion of pending workers in the User Details System Extract report.

You must enable the new Country field and the new simplified bank account page using Page Composer.

Enhanced Support for Rate Definitions

Perform more complex rate calculations by defining rates based on other rate definitions, or values defined by criteria, or by calling a formula, for example to retrieve a rate from a user-defined table. These new options are in addition to the existing options to define rates using payroll balances or element input values. You can also now define rates that support currency conversion, rounding rules, and use employees’ FTE status for part-time and full-time rate conversions. Enhanced element templates for earnings classifications make it easy to use employee's FTE status for flat amount-based rates, and to select the new Factor calculation rule for rates that are a percentage of other earnings.

Gross-to-Net Report Based on Process Date

The Gross-to-Net report uses the process date as the reporting date. Previously, the report displayed the balances for the payroll period in which the entries are calculated. You control which results to view by specifying a date range that includes the process dates of the payroll calculations. The report displays the balances for the payroll period in which the process date occurs.

Report Year-to-Date Summary

A new Report YTD Summary parameter was introduced in Release 9 for the Payroll Activity and Payroll Register reports.

For example, you can include information such as a congratulatory message, retirement plan contribution percentage, and earnings by week within the current pay period.

Rolling 12-Month Balance Dimension

You can now use a new balance dimensions for a rolling 12-month period. A rolling balance is a balance that runs backwards from a fixed date. For example, let’s say you wanted to retrieve bonus balances for a group of employees for an entire fiscal year. You could set the start date to 01-SEP-2015 and then use this balance dimension to return all run results between 31-AUG-2014 and 01-SEP-2015.

Display Year-to-Date Hours in Payroll Register Report

Verify the year-to-date number of hours worked for standard earnings and absence payments at the employee level.

Corrective Actions Available on Completed Flows

Correct completed flows by selecting actions such as Mark for Retry or Roll Back. Previously, you corrected a completed flow by submitting a new flow, such as Retry Payroll Process or Roll Back Process.

Calling a Flow Within a Flow

Gain more flexibility in managing flows by adding a task, Submit Another Flow, to your flow pattern to call another flow. For example, in a prepayments flow, add the Submit Another flow task to call a flow of prepayment reports.

Use this task in newly created, copied, or existing customized flow patterns to:

Payment Method Batch Loader Tasks

Use the new tasks in the payroll batch loader to manage bank and payment method data more easily. The new tasks you can use in the payroll batch loader workbooks are:

Enhancements to Payment Method Rules

Control which bank accounts to debit for payments to third parties by defining payment method rules based on specific criteria such as third-party name. For example, define rules to make payments to pension providers from a designated account, and other third-party payments from a separate account.

Value Sets Usage in Flow Parameters

Gain more flexibility when defining a list of values for a flow parameter by creating a value set and assigning it to the flow parameter. When you create a value set, you can create a SQL query to define the values to use for the flow parameter.

Void Payment Action in Prepayments

Easily void a check or electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment using the Void action in the Actions menu on the Person Process Results page when viewing prepayments results. For example, you can use this action to void a check that was damaged after you issued it to an employee and the employee requested a replacement.
