Overview

HCM Cloud applications have two types of patches you can receive that are documented in this New Feature Summary:

It is important for you to know what Release Update your environment is on. You can find this in your Cloud Portal. If you are on Update 18A, you will only have features that are in 18A or the Monthlies for 18A, you will not have 18B features until you receive the 18B update. You can however read ahead on future release so you can make plans for when you will receive the next update.

If you are upgrading from Release 12, you should read all features up through the Release Update that you will receive in the upgrade, this can also be found in Cloud Portal.

Oracle HCM Cloud release documents are delivered in five functional groupings:

Suggested Reading for all HCM Products:

NOTE: Not all Global Human Resource features are available for the base Talent and Compensation stand alone applications.

Optional Reading for HCM Products (Depending on what products are in your cloud service):

Career and Succession

Talent Review

Oracle Talent Review is an analytic product enabling your organization to review and evaluate data from the profile, performance, goals, career development, and compensation management solutions.

Learning and Development

Learning Cloud

Oracle Learning Cloud enables you to make a transformational shift in learning delivery. Subject matter experts in your organization can easily publish videos and assemble tutorials to deliver on-demand and social learning. Collaboration features encourage continuous community feedback.

Virtual Classroom Support

WebEx Virtual Classroom Integration

Streamline the WebEx Meeting Center and WebEx Training Center meeting creation and update process for the Administrator by integrating Oracle Learning Cloud to WebEx. Meetings in WebEx are automatically created or updated from Oracle Learning Cloud for the Instructor (Meeting Host) and Learner (Attendee) when Virtual Classroom activities are managed by the Administrator.

Skillsoft Integration

Skillsoft Content Integration

Streamline the learning item creation process for the Administrator by integrating Skillsoft content to Oracle Learning Cloud. Automatic creation of courses, offerings, activities, and content occurs when bulk import or single import is initiated by the Administrator.

Waitlist

Waitlisting

Allow self-service users to join the waitlist of an offering when it is already full. Waitlists are automatically processed by the system. When seats become available, the first in, first out clearing method is used. Offerings requiring that self-service users obtain an enrollment approval must first be approved before the system places the learner on the waitlist.

Override Maximum Capacity

Increase the configured offering capacity while creating an assignment to satisfy the selected recipients of a learning assignment. This allows the Administrator to guarantee seats for the assignment recipients even if there are already other people on the waitlist.

Manually Processing a Waitlisted Learner

Prerequisites

Skills and Qualification Prerequisites for Courses and Specializations

Configure courses and specializations with prerequisite skills and qualifications. This prevents learners from engaging with a learning item until prerequisites are met. The Administrator and managers can view learning assignments blocked by missing prerequisites.  Additionally, Administrators can unblock assignments missing prerequisites if they choose.

Expire Learning Assignments Pending Prerequisites

Expire learning assignments after a set number of days when prerequisites are missing. 

Waive Prerequisites

Choose to waive prerequisites during assignment creation or on existing learning assignments blocked by prerequisites.

Manage Catalog

Add Courses and Specializations to Communities

Add courses and specializations to community catalogs from the administrator course and specialization details pages.

Catalog Item Translation Editor

Use the translation editor to translate the title and short description of courses, offerings, offering activities, and specializations. This allows the Administrator to provide translations without having to sign out and sign in in a different language.

Manage Self-Service Content by the Administrator

Manage self-service videos, tutorials and self-service communities created by employees and managers via the self-service functionality. The Administrator can delete self-service videos, tutorials and manage self-service communities.

Manage Content Items

Support Deletion of Content Items

Delete SCORM content, videos, PDF documents, and web pages used in self-paced learning.  When this occurs, a message indicating that content is not available will be displayed to the learner when they access an activity backed by the deleted content.  The activity cannot be automatically transitioned to a completed state, the administrator can manually change the activity status via manage activities.

View Content Item Import Errors

Enhance resource management by viewing errors during the import of SCORM content, HACP courses, videos, and PDF documents. This allows the Administrator to troubleshoot import issues.

Contextual Learning

Direct Links to Catalog Items

Support direct access to the self-service and administrator views of catalog courses, offerings, and specializations. The Administrator can obtain these direct links from the Learning Item Number link when viewing learning items, and share them with others. An HTML code snippet is also available to embed the self-service details page of an item into other applications or web pages. Learners can access these direct links from the learning item details page action button.  

Enhanced Contextual Learning Functionality

Enhanced contextual learning functionality so that the activity player can be directed to a specific activity or the evaluation step in the activity player.  This also includes enhancing the web plugin to be directed to a specific activity or evaluation step in the activity player.

Manage Learning Items

Flexfield Support on Learning Items

Support learning item and specialization level flexfields.

Default Learning Assignment Attributes

Streamline the assignment creation process by using configurable default assignment details.

New Course Management Data Security

Control for which courses the Administrator can create offerings. When the Administrator creates an offering and chooses an offering, data security is enforced.

Enhance Offering Activities Management

Mark offering activities as complete, exempted or incomplete using a completion date. This allows the Administrator to better manage offering assignments.

Approve Previously Rejected Learning Requests

Approve learning requests previously rejected. This allows the Administrator to take corrective action on existing requests if needed.

Change Learning Assignment Type Between Voluntary and Required

Change the learning assignment from required learning to voluntary learning, or vice versa. This allows the Administrator to perform corrective action instead of withdrawing the assignment and creating a new one.

Enhance Required and Voluntary Assignments

Allow only one active assignment at a time per learner. Simultaneous required and voluntary assignments on the same learning item are no longer supported. A required assignment has higher priority over a voluntary assignment and as such a learner receiving a required learning assignment will replace a voluntary assignment if one exists. Additionally, course and offering assignments have been updated to follow the course and offering relationship. As such, a course assignment will always exist when a learner is assigned an offering. For every course assignment, a learner may have one or more related offering assignments, but only one can be active or completed at any given moment.

Person Number Support in Manage Learners

Enhance tables with a new column displaying the HCM person number of assignment recipients. This functionality helps to uniquely identify people.

Support Learning Assignments Not Meeting Completion Criteria
