Optional Uptake of New Features (Opt In)

Oracle Cloud Applications delivers new updates every quarter. This means every three months you'll receive new functionality to help you efficiently and effectively manage your business. Some features are delivered Enabled meaning they are immediately available to end users. Other features are delivered Disabled meaning you have to take action to make available. Features delivered Disabled can be activated for end users by stepping through the following instructions using the following privileges:

  • Review Applications Offering (ASM_REVIEW_APPLICATIONS_OFFERINGS_PRIV)
  • Configure Oracle Fusion Applications Offering (ASM_CONFIGURE_OFFERING_PRIV)

Here’s how you opt in to new features:

  1. Click Navigator > My Enterprise > New Features.
  2. On the Features Overview page, select your offering to review new features specific to it. Or, you can leave the default selection All Enabled Offerings to review new features for all offerings.
  3. On the New Features tab, review the new features and check the opt-in status of the feature in the Enabled column. If a feature has already been enabled, you will see a check mark. Otherwise, you will see an icon to enable the feature.
  4. Click the icon in the Enabled column and complete the steps to enable the feature.

In some cases, you might want to opt in to a feature that's not listed in the New Features work area. Here's how to opt in:

  1. Click Navigator > My Enterprise > Offerings.
  2. On the Offerings page, select your offering, and then click Opt In Features.
  3. On the Opt In page, click the Edit Features (pencil) icon for the offering, or for the functional area that includes your feature.
  4. On the Edit Features page, complete the steps to enable the feature.

For more information and detailed instructions on opting in to new features for your offering, see Configure Offerings.

Opt In Expiration

Occasionally, features delivered Disabled via Opt In may be enabled automatically in a future update. This is known as an Opt In Expiration. If your cloud service has any Opt In Expirations you will see a related tab in this document. Click on that tab to see when the feature was originally delivered Disabled, and when the Opt In will expire, potentially automatically enabling the feature. You can also click here to see features with Opt In Expirations across all Oracle Cloud Applications.

Feature Summary

Column Definitions:

Report = New or modified, Oracle-delivered, ready to run reports.

UI or Process-Based: Small Scale = These UI or process-based features are typically comprised of minor field, validation, or program changes. Therefore, the potential impact to users is minimal.

UI or Process-Based: Larger Scale* = These UI or process-based features have more complex designs. Therefore, the potential impact to users is higher.

Features Delivered Disabled = Action is needed BEFORE these features can be used by END USERS. These features are delivered disabled and you choose if and when to enable them. For example, a) new or expanded BI subject areas need to first be incorporated into reports, b) Integration is required to utilize new web services, or c) features must be assigned to user roles before they can be accessed.

Ready for Use by End Users
(Feature Delivered Enabled)

Reports plus Small Scale UI or Process-Based new features will have minimal user impact after an update. Therefore, customer acceptance testing should focus on the Larger Scale UI or Process-Based* new features.

Customer Must Take Action before Use by End Users
(Feature Delivered Disabled)

Not disruptive as action is required to make these features ready to use. As you selectively choose to leverage, you set your test and roll out timing.

Simplified Workflow Rules Configuration

Use the Simplified Workflow Rules Configuration feature to create workflow rules using spreadsheets for Payables Invoice Approval and General Ledger Journal Approval workflows. Download the templates using the Manage Workflow Rules in Spreadsheet task to create and manage workflow rules according to your approval policies.

This feature was introduced in update 18C. In addition to the existing features, the 23C update also lets you do the following:

  • Advanced configuration, with an expanded range of functions and more information about each function.
  • Optional enablement and disablement of rules and rule blocks.
  • Add multiple approval actions on the same rule conditions.

Use Lists to create customized approval rules based on specific business needs, such as associating a department or project with an invoice or setting threshold limits. This provides greater flexibility and control over the approval process, reduces the need for creating and maintaining a large number of rules, and helps improve both efficiency and compliance.

Enable or disable rules and rule blocks as needed to improve efficiency by eliminating the unnecessary steps of copying rules. Disabled rules do not affect approval processing.

General Ledger

Column Attribute Change in Journals Report

In the Journals Report, the ACTUAL_FLAG column has been renamed to BALANCE_TYPE when viewing output in CSV format. The PDF, Excel, and HTML output formats of these reports are not impacted.

This change was made to the data model used by the Journals Report, that is, Journal Data Model, so that the Balance Type report parameter is consistent with the column name in the CSV report output. This column identifies whether a journal batch contains actual (A) or encumbrance (E) amounts. The BALANCE_TYPE column is displayed immediately after the BATCH_DESC in the CSV file.

Business benefit:

The column name in the CSV report output is now consistent with the parameter name of the Journals Report.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Intercompany

Intercompany Transactions Import Error Correction Spreadsheet

Use the Intercompany Transactions Import Error Correction ADFdi spreadsheet to correct imported intercompany transactions that ended in error. The error correction spreadsheet can in some cases help reduce the need to manually correct errors and repeat the import process.

To use the Intercompany Transactions Import Error Correction spreadsheet:

Step 1: Generate the correction spreadsheet using one of the following navigation:

  • Navigate to Intercompany Transactions> Tasks> Correct Import Errors. This downloads a spreadsheet that you can use to search for transactions that ended in error; or
  • Navigate to the Intercompany Transactions> Import Errors tab and click on a specific request ID. This downloads a spreadsheet for the transaction with that specific request ID

Step 2: Review and follow the instructions outlined in the first tab of the Intercompany Transactions Import Error Correction spreadsheet

Business Benefit:

The Intercompany Transactions Import Error Correction spreadsheet lists the intercompany transactions that ended in error, along with the error messages or reasons for rejection. It allows Intercompany Accountants to review the errors and make the corrections directly on the spreadsheet, and import the corrected transactions. This process makes it easier and can significantly reduce the time it takes to correct errors. Before this update, users had to repeat the import process after fixing the source transactions, potentially taking more effort and time.

Steps to Enable

You don't need to do anything to enable this feature.

Tips And Considerations

  • You should import after you correct all the errors. For example, a single transaction has the following two errors: Accounting date is in a closed period, and Distribution 1 has an invalid account combination. These two errors must be corrected before importing transactions.
  • After you have corrected errors on a sheet, click Upload and select the save option before moving to the next sheet. To import all corrected transactions, click Upload and select one of the import transaction options.

Expenses

Enforcement of Limits for Entertainment Policies Based on Employee Grade

Enforce single, daily and yearly limits for entertainment expenses based on employee grades. If multiple employee attendees are present at an entertainment, enforce limits based on each attendee's grade.

Administrators can enable this option using the Manage Policies by Expense Categories task.

Create Entertainment Policy page in the Manage Policies by Expense Category task

To enable this, the administrator needs to select 'Employee' and 'Role' as Rate Determinants. Once enabled, the administrators can then define the rates for each employee grade in the Create Rates page.

Create Rates Page

The administrator must provide a value for the rates for a role type of ‘All Other’s apart from the rates that they define for individual grades.

This feature allows different rates based on the employee grade, thus allowing granular and flexible control on the business expenses incurred by employees.

Multifund Accounting with User Modifications to Subledger Accounting Rules

Modify Subledger Accounting rules for user implementations enabled for Multifund Accounting. Manage account code combinations on invoices and debit memos posted to General Ledger through modifications to the predefined Subledger Accounting rules. Use the same accounted fund details in credit memo and receipt accounting.

User modifications to the predefined Journal Entry Rule Sets for multifund accounting are now supported. The account code combinations for revenue, freight, and tax on an invoice or debit memo can now be posted to General Ledger using complex conditions and input values interfaced from external sources. The corresponding Receivable entries are modified as per the multifund accounting approach, and the same code combinations are reversed on subsequent adjustments, credit memos, and receipt applications. This ensures uniformity and balancing of accounting entries in the General Ledger.

Steps to Enable

This feature is auto-enabled in Functional Setup Manager.

A new source with the name 'Account Code Posted to General Ledger' is available for event classes Credit Memo and Receipt. Create new Account Rules using this source for each balancing segment that is enabled for accounting.

To manage the Invoice and Debit Memo accounting, complete these steps -

  1. Duplicate the predefined Journal Entry Rule Set 'Invoices - Multifund Accounting Balancing Method'. If a modified Rule Set is used in the Account Method, use it for the next steps.
  1. Add the required Segment Rules for Revenue, Freight, and Tax Journal Lines, as applicable.

To manage the Adjustment accounting, complete these steps -

  1. Duplicate the predefined Journal Entry Rule Set 'Adjustments - Multifund Accounting Balancing Method'. If a modified Rule Set is used in the Account Method, use it for the next steps.
  1. For adjustments with 'Revenue on Invoice' -
    • Duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Adjustment'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Adjustment GL Account Source" = REVENUE_ON_INVOICE.
    • In the Advanced Options Tab, mark the option 'Link Journal Lines' as Business Flow and set the Business Flow Class as 'Revenue'.
    • Remove the existing Journal Line Rule 'Adjustment' from the Journal Entry Rule Set and add the newly created Journal Line Rule as a Credit line.
    • Also, duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Adjustment Receivable'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Adjustment GL Account Source" = REVENUE_ON_INVOICE. 
    • In the Advanced Options Tab, mark the option 'Link Journal Lines' as Business Flow and set the Business Flow Class as 'Receivable'.
    • Remove the existing Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Adjustment Receivable' from the Journal Entry Rule Set and add the newly created Journal Line Rule as a Debit line.
  1. For adjustments other than 'Revenue on Invoice' -
    • Duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Adjustment'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Adjustment GL Account Source" != REVENUE_ON_INVOICE.
    • Add the newly created Journal Line Rule as a Credit line and retain the Account Combination Rule 'Distribution GL Account'.
    • Also, duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Adjustment Receivable'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Adjustment GL Account Source" != REVENUE_ON_INVOICE. 
    • Add the newly created Journal Line Rule as a Debit line and retain the Account Combination Rule 'Multifund Transaction Default Receivables GL Account' and the corresponding balancing segment rules (with Copy option).

To manage the Credit Memo accounting, complete these steps -

  1. Duplicate the predefined Journal Entry Rule Set 'Credit Memos - Multifund Accounting Balancing Method'. If a modified Rule Set is used in the Account Method, use it for the next steps.
  1. For On-account Credit Memos -
    • Duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Applied To Receivable'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Credit Memo Previous Transaction Identifier" Is null.
    • Remove the existing Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Applied To Receivable' from the Journal Entry Rule Set.
    • Add the newly created Journal Line Rule and specify the new Account Rule that is created using the predefined source 'Account Code Posted to General Ledger' for each balancing segment. Retain the Account Combination Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Distribution GL Account'.
    • Also, duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Activity From Receivable'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Credit Memo Previous Transaction Identifier" Is null.
    • Remove the existing Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Activity From Receivable' from the Journal Entry Rule Set.
    • Add the newly created Journal Line Rule and specify the new Account Rule that is created using the predefined source 'Account Code Posted to General Ledger' for each balancing segment. Retain the Account Combination Rule 'Distribution GL Account'.
  1. For Standard Credit Memos -
    • Duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Applied To Receivable'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Credit Memo Previous Transaction Identifier" Is not null.
    • Add the newly created Journal Line Rule to the Journal Entry Rule Set.
    • Retain the Account Combination Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Distribution GL Account' and the corresponding segment rules like - Multifund Transaction Balancing for Primary Balancing Segment etc.
    • Duplicate the Journal Line Rule 'Multifund Credit Memo Activity From Receivable'.
    • Add to the existing conditions - 'And' "Credit Memo Previous Transaction Identifier" Is not null.
    • Add the newly created Journal Line Rule to the Journal Entry Rule Set.
    • Retain the Account Combination Rule 'Distribution GL Account' and the corresponding segment rules like - Multifund Default Credit Memo Reference for Primary Segment etc.

To manage the Receipt accounting, complete these steps -

  1. Duplicate the predefined Journal Entry Rule Set 'Receipts - Multifund Accounting Balancing Method'. If a modified Rule Set is used in the Account Method, use it for the next steps.
  1. Use the Account Rules that are created using the predefined source 'Account Code Posted to General Ledger' against the below listed predefined Journal Line Rules for each balancing segment -
    • Multifund Receipts Cleared Cash
    • Receipt Application to Multifund Transaction Confirmation
    • Receipt Application to Multifund Transaction Remittance

Mark all the modified Journal Entry Rule Sets as 'Active' and include them in the Subledger Accounting Method associated with the Ledger.

Tips And Considerations

  • In order to maintain uniformity in accounting (and avoid intercompany balancing entries), the Credit Memo Subledger Accounting rules should use the same criteria that are applicable to the corresponding revenue, freight, and tax accounts on the Invoice.  In case it is driven on the basis of descriptive flexfields, then the option 'Copy transaction information flexfield to credit memo' should be enabled on the Transaction Source associated with the Invoice.  Also, the profile option 'Use Invoice Accounting for Credit Memos' should be set to 'Yes'.
  • Segment values other than the balancing segments of a Receivable account on an invoice or debit memo can also be modified through the Subledger Segment Rules.  The entire (modified) code combination that is posted to General Ledger is used for all subsequent activities on the invoice or debit memo.
  • The new source 'Account Code Posted to General Ledger' can be used only on the Account Method that is associated with the Primary Ledger.

Key Resources

Access Requirements

  • You must have the Financial Application Administrator job role to modify the Subledger Accounting Rules.
  • You must have the Review Subledger Journal Entry privilege to view the accounting information.

Transaction Sweep to Future Accounting Period Using a Scheduled Process

Capitalization of Fixed Assets for Inventory Destination Receipts in the Procurement Process

Capitalize and place fixed assets with a destination type of Inventory in service as soon as they are received. This initiates the process of recognizing depreciation expenses at once and eliminates the delays involved in waiting for the invoice process.

Use Oracle Maintenance to create corresponding maintenance assets for the received fixed assets. The maintenance asset process automatically establishes a relationship with the corresponding fixed assets without any manual intervention. The maintenance process also creates multiple assets for serialized items. This feature is for customers whose capitalization policy dictates that they can capitalize certain categories of assets as they are received.

This feature supports Multiple Reporting Currencies and secondary ledgers that have a different currency than the primary ledger. Asset additions in the asset book associated with a secondary ledger or reporting ledger are recorded at the amount at which the receipts were accounted in the secondary ledger in Cost Accounting.

After accounting for the receipt of the asset, transfer the estimated costs and nonrecoverable taxes from the receipt to Assets using the Transfer Receipts to Mass Additions process in Oracle Maintenance. This process transfers the assets to the corporate book associated with the item's inventory organization, using the receipt date of the goods as the in-service date. In addition, the category is populated by default based upon either the asset category on your purchase order (PO) line item definition, or by matching the natural account of the asset category’s clearing account to that of the PO charge account. The asset location is populated automatically if your asset location is mapped to your ship-to location. The serial number is also transferred from the receipt to the fixed asset.

Enter and account for the invoice matched to either the purchase order or the receipt, the application posts any variance between the purchase order and the invoice amounts to the asset as an adjustment.

To accomplish this, perform the following steps:

  1. When creating an item in Oracle Product Management in the Create Item page:
    • Select Full Asset Lifecycle for the Enable Asset Tracking: Service section
    • Select Yes for the Enable Asset Maintenance in the Item Organization: Service section.
    • Select At Receipt for the Create Fixed Asset field in the Item Organization: Service section.
    • Associate the inventory organization in the Associations tab.
  1. When adding purchase order lines items
    • Set the Destination Type to Inventory.
    • Select Accrue at Receipt
    • Select Subinventory.
  1. After successful procurement of the item, receive the items into the inventory organization defined in the item.
  1. Ensure that this inventory organization is associated with an Assets corporate book
  1. Run the following scheduled jobs to import the asset to Assets. Ensure that the Cost Accountant role is assigned to your user.
    • Transfer Transactions from Receiving to Costing (Oracle Cost Management)
    • Transfer Costs to Cost Management (Cost Management)

    • Review Cost Accounting Distributions (Oracle Supply Chain Execution in Cost Accounting, optional to view the journal entries)
    • Transfer Receipts to Mass Additions (Oracle Maintenance)

  1. Enter the purchase order or receipt matched invoice.
  1. To import these invoice details into Assets, run the following processes. Only charges prorated or allocated to the item lies will be transferred to Assets.
    • Create Accounting (Oracle Payables).
    • Transfer Costs to Cost Management (Cost Management)
    • Create Receipt Accounting Distributions (Cost Management)
    • Create Cost Accounting Distributions (Cost Management)
    • Create Accounting for Cost Management and Receipt Accounting (Cost Management)
    • Review Receipt Accounting Distributions (Oracle Supply Chain Execution in Receipt Accounting, optional to view the journal entries)
    • Review Cost Accounting Distributions (Oracle Supply Chain Execution in Cost Accounting, optional to view the journal entries)
    • Transfer Receipts to Mass Additions (Oracle Maintenance) 
  1. Navigate to Fixed Assets> Assets. Ensure that the Asset Accountant or Asset Accounting Manager role is assigned to your user for this step.
  1. Optionally run the Prepare Mass Additions Automatically process.

  1. The newly added fixed asset is tied back to its operational counterpart in Oracle Maintenance using the Connect Fixed Assets to Operational Assets process. You can see the fixed asset associated with your maintenance asset on the Fixed Asset tab of the Manage Assets page of Maintenance Management in Oracle Cloud SCM.

Business benefits include:

  • Creates a fixed asset and a maintenance asset at receipt with a destination of inventory.
  • Records the depreciation expense in a timely manner to eliminate any delays due to the invoicing process.
  • Establishes an automatic relationship between the maintenance asset and the associated fixed asset without manual intervention.
  • Provides complete visibility into the operational and financial information of the assets.

Steps to Enable

  1. Use the Opt In UI to enable this feature. For instructions, refer to the Optional Uptake of New Features section of this document.

    • Set the Destination Type to Inventory in the purchase order.
    • Select the Accrue at Receipt option in the purchase order.
    • Accrue the purchases as you receive them.
    • Enable the Create Fixed Asset at Receipt option for the item.
    • Create the purchase order after the cut-off date to enable this feature.
    • Ensure only non-project-based purchase receipts are transferred to Assets.
  1. Account the receipt fully before transferring any information to Assets.Receive the item into the inventory organization associated with your Assets corporate book Any item line transferred to Assets is a merged parent. Any subsequent freight, tax, and miscellaneous charges to the parent are premerged with the item line, as long as the line is not in the Post queue. Once the line is in the Post queue, the application waits for it to be posted before transferring any new costs. Once the line is posted and a new asset is created, you add further costs to this asset as an adjustment by using the Add to Asset action in the Prepare Source Lines page in Assets. You cannot merge or split any lines transferred from Oracle Receiving to Assets. You cannot change the asset book for such mass addition line in Assets.

NOTE: The Create Mass Additions process will not be used to transfer any invoice adjustments to Assets.

It is recommended that you schedule the processes to be run periodically rather than running them manually every time a receipt and invoice is created.

The Transfer Receipts to Mass Additions process transfers the receipts and the invoices at one time. As a result, the processes can be run at one time instead of running them separately.

LEASE REVENUE RECOGNITION

Recognize lease revenue each period according to IFRS16 and ASC842. When the Lease Administrator creates the lease, the revenue recognition schedule is automatically generated. For operating leases, the revenue is evenly spread over the revenue recognition term. The lease revenue recognition process creates the transaction to reduce the accrued asset balance and recognizes the revenue according to the schedule.

Accrued Revenue

LEASE INVOICE PROCESSING

Create lease invoices automatically in Receivables. Lessors can invoice their lessees and other parties associated with their leases each period for rent, service, insurance, common area maintenance charges, or other amounts included in the leases.

The Process Lease Payment process provides the ability to:

  • Limit transfer of payments to one lease only, payments within a specific range of dates, a particular customer and bill-to site, payment type, and payment purpose.
  • Launch Receivables Invoice Import as part of the lease process.
  • Put payments on hold and subsequently release the hold.

The invoice number is available on the schedules tab for a lease after the payment interfaces to Receivables and the Process Lease Payment Tie Back process is run. Any exceptions that need action are available on the Lease Accounting dashboard. 

Payment Schedule with Receivables Invoice Number Reference

Business benefits include:

  • Standardize lease information in a single repository.
  • Compliance with IFRS16 and ASC842 lease accounting for revenue leases.
  • Increase productivity and reduce the risk of error with automated ASC 842 and IFRS 16 lease processes for revenue leases.
  • Reduce effort to bill and collect from lessees through automated integration with the Oracle Receivables module.
  • Improve transparency with Receivables invoices initiated from Lease Accounting visible on the lease.

Business Unit Security for Fiscal Document Generation for Brazil

Implement business unit security for the Brazilian fiscal document generation process. This will align the data security of fiscal documents with Receivables transactions.

Currently, an organization can restrict user access to Receivables transactions by business unit, but all users have access to fiscal documents in all business units.

Use the Fiscal Document Generation abstract role to segregate user access to fiscal documents by business unit in line with Receivables transaction access. You can also use this role to segregate access to fiscal documents based on Shipment transactions by the financials business unit associated with the inventory organization.

Unless the Fiscal Document Generation role is associated with specific users, all users still have access to fiscal documents in all business units.

Business benefits include:

  • Organize fiscal document access and processing by user for specific business units.

  • Prevent users working with Receivables transactions in one business unit from incorrectly editing or processing fiscal documents in another business unit.

Steps to Enable

To enable fiscal document segregation by business unit:

  1. Use the Security Console to create a new custom job role.
  1. Under Role Hierarchy tab, search for the “Fiscal Document Generation” abstract role (ORA_JG_FISCAL_DOCUMENT_GENERATION_DISCRETIONARY) and add it to the custom role.
  1. Under Users tab, add the users to the custom role.
  1. Save the custom role and run the Import User and Role Application Security Data ESS job.
  1. Use the Manage Data Access for Users task to authorize users data access for the custom role and desired business units.
