Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Purpose of Document 1
  18. 18. 2. Introduction 2.1. Purpose of Document This Release Content Document (RCD) communicates information about new or changed functionality introduced in Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2, and in subsequent Release Update Packs (RUPs) and off-cycle patches. For your convenience, it also includes new or changed functionality introduced in the RUPs for Release 12, including 12.0.2 through 12.0.7. The features and enhancements described in this document are grouped by product, and then by the release in which they first became available, for example, “Release 12.1.1”. Features released in an off-cycle patch have a special designation – for example, a feature released after 12.1.1, but before 12.1.2, is designated as “Release 12.1.1+”. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Purpose of Document 2
  19. 19. 3. New and Changed Management 3.1. Featur es in Human Capital Or acle Advanced Benefits 3.1.1. Release 12.0.3 (RUP3) 3.1.1.1. Reopen Life Events Process This enhancement provides the benefits users the flexibility to reopen a large volume of life events as a batch. Previously, they had to be manually reopened individually. In combination with the "OE Window Modification" functionality, users can extend enrollment windows after reopening the processed events. 3.1.1.2. Open Enrollment Window Modification There is now a concurrent process titled "Manage Open Enrollment Window" which provides the flexibility to modify an existing Open Enrollment Window's Enrollment Period End Date, Processing End Date, Default Enrollment Date, or Provide a Number of Days Extension. 3.1.1.3. Tracking Ineligible to Ineligible Row Creation When the "Track Ineligible" flag is on, and a participant was initially found ineligible for the compensation object, this functionality writes a new row for a subsequent life event (even though the participant remains ineligible). The new ineligibility row has updated derived factor values for tracking and calculations. 3.1.1.4. Additional Input Parameters for Fast Formulas Person_id can now be passed as an input value in Fast Formulas. In the past, Person_id had to be derived from the Assignment_id. 3.1.2. Release 12.1.1 3.1.2.1. Enforce Minimum Coverage for Life Events with No Electable Choices There are situations that occur where due to either data or configuration issues, someone is found ineligible for something in which they are currently enrolled and end up with no enrollment. This enhancement deals with the functionality of detecting those cases when a participant loses coverage and is not allowed to make elections for specific events. With this enhancement, the application performs the following: • Identifies if the minimum enrollment for the Plan Type in Program should be checked for a business group if an event is processed and the person cannot make elections. • Checks if a person lost coverage, when you process an event that does not allow the person to make elections. • Checks if a person still meets the Plan Type in Program minimum limitation requirements, if the person lost coverage and is still eligible for the Plan Type in Program that they were enrolled in. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Benefits 3
  20. 20. • Generates an error if the requirements are not met so the person does not lose coverage and the eligibility issues can be resolved. 3.1.2.2. Restrict Display of Primary Care Provider Currently, the Plan Primary Care Provider (PCP) setup controls the display of primary care providers. This enhancement enables benefits users to configure, based on life events, whether the Primary Care Provider page on self-service enrollment should be displayed. A new field called Show Primary Care Provider is now available on the Life Event Reasons form. This new feature provides you the ability to accept the PCP information only during the annual or initial enrollments, and allow the medical carrier to maintain the PCP information thereafter. 3.1.2.3. Enhanced Individual Contribution Distribution Individual Compensation Distribution (ICD) module has been enhanced for Managers and Compensation Administrators. Line managers can now achieve the following in the enhanced module: • Can enter multiple input values associated with an element in a compensation plan. User will have the flexibility to use within ICD, whole or partial list of defined input values associated with an element. It will be possible to rename input values for display in self-service. Also, user will be able to override sequencing and updateability of input values within ICD. • Can award multiple compensations of same or different type to an employee within a single transaction on same or different dates. • Can update and delete active and future compensations (e.g. change the amount dates or delete the award). • Can indicate a distribution end date for a recurring compensation within the same transaction it is awarded. Administrators can do the following actions regarding Individual compensation distribution plans: • • Can configure element entry flex fields to capture compensation related information for an employee. For example: Justification for the compensation can now be configured as a flexfield, captured during the transaction and stored as part of the employee element entries. • Can default input values as a fixed value or using a fast formula. • Can search employees and update or delete awards • Can view, update and delete element entries that did not originate in ICD. • 3.1.3. Can configure validation on input values based on Value Sets, Data Types, Minimum, Maximum and Default, Lookups and Fast Formula. Can configure action items for compensation plans. This will put compensation on hold for a person, until the action item is provided. Release 12.1.2 3.1.3.1. Use Default Enrollment to Reinstate Backed Out Intervening Events Benefits Administrators can now use a new reinstatement code "Reinstate Unless New Explicit Elections Exist" to reinstate elections made for a backed out event unless explicit elections have been made within the plan type for an intervening event. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Benefits 4
  21. 21. 3.1.3.2. Use a New System Profile to Carry Forward Certifications for Life Events without a Configured Coverage Restriction Using the new System Profile, BEN: Carry Forward Certification; Benefit Administrators can carry forward interim and suspended coverage created due to coverage restrictions configured for a life event when subsequent life events do not have coverage restrictions. 3.1.3.3. Recalculate Imputed Income When Coverage Amount Changes Upon Receipt of Certification. This enhancement enables Benefit Administrators to recalculate the imputed income rate as of when coverage subject to imputed income becomes unsuspended and changes due to receipt of certification. 3.1.3.4. Suppress HIPAA if Participant Gains Electability in Alternate Plan Type There may be multiple plan types within a program that have plans subject to HIPAA. Persons who continue coverage in plans subject to HIPAA although they are in different plan types are not required to receive the HIPAA communication. This enhancement now enables Benefits Administrators to suppress the communication trigger type Participant Deenrollment – HIPAA if a participant is dropped from coverage in a plan subject to HIPAA but gains electability to others plans subject to HIPAA within a different plan type in the same program. 3.1.4. Release 12.1.3 3.1.4.1. User Defined Cr iter ia for Dependent Eligibility The current person-related criteria available for dependent eligibility include Disabled, Marital, Military and Student statuses. User defined criteria available for Participant profiles allow an expanded choice of criteria including descriptive flexfields. With this enhancement, benefit administrators will be able to define dependent eligibility based on an expanded choice of criteria from per_all_people_f such as Tobacco Use, Benefits Group or descriptive flexfield. 3.1.5. Release 12.1 HRMS RUP5 3.1.5.1. View Rate History in Self Service With this enhancement, participants will be able to view all of the rate values associated with an enrollment result in Self Service. Rates may change over the span of a single coverage period. Now, participants can view costs over the time they were enrolled in the compensation object. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.5.2. Close Enrollment in Self Service Before this enhancement, when a life event is set to close when elections are made, it will not close when the elections are made in Self Service until the Close Enrollment concurrent process is run. Now benefit administrators can allow participants to close such enrollments via self service. Participants can then make elections and proceed with a subsequent or previously backed out life event without intervention from the back office. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Benefits 5
  22. 22. 3.1.5.3. Reopen Reinstated Enrollment A benefit administrator can now decide whether reinstated enrollments should be automatically closed, or whether an enrollment opportunity should be reopened to allow participants to confirm or update the reinstated results. Before this enhancement, if the reinstated results needed to be changed, the life event had to be manually reopened. Now it is possible to allow participants to use self service to make any adjustments to the backed out enrollment without back office intervention. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.5.4. Deactivate Communication Type Prior to this extract, users were unable to end a communication type that was no longer being offered. Now users have the ability to flag a communication type that is no longer in use to stop it from triggering on a person’s record. The flag is datetracked and easily viewable. Now the Benefit professional can easily see when a communication is no longer being provided and also has the ability to reactivate the communication type if it is needed at a later date. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.5.5. Eligibility for Person Changes and Communication Types In addition to defining a life event based on a person change, benefit administrators can attach eligibility profiles so that static data associated with the person can be considered when determining whether a life event should be detected. Also, eligibility profiles can be associated with a communication type, adding additional criteria to the trigger and usage definitions to determine whether the person should be receiving a communication type. This reduces the unnecessary detection of life events and communication types. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.5.6. All Ineligible Flag for Compensation Objects Now when a compensation object is no longer being offered, benefit administrators can flag the object to be discontinued. When the participation process is run, it will find all persons ineligible, causing existing enrollees to be de-enrolled and prohibiting any ability to enroll. Prior to this, benefit administrators had to create an eligibility profile with artificial criteria to find all possible participants ineligible. This required the administrator to continue to monitor and maintain eligibility due to the possibility of a person actually meeting the artificial profile criteria. The flag is also clearly visible and date tracked allowing the benefit professional to quickly see whether a compensation object is currently discontinued. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.5.7. Use Person Selection rule for Extract Process The feature adds person selection rule as an optional parameter for running a System Extract. This allows users to collect data for a subset of the original population on an ad hoc basis without having to modify the selection criteria in the extract definition or create copies. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Benefits 6
  23. 23. 3.1.5.8. Delete Unrestricted Enrollment Once an unrestricted life event (Oracle Standard Benefits) has been detected and started for a person, there was no process for removing the life event and any associated benefit enrollment data. If an unrestricted enrollment was made for an original hire date, but that date needed to be moved to a later date, this could not be done as this would result in benefit information associate with the person to start prior to their record start date. Now there is a concurrent process that can be added to a responsibility’s request group which will allow the user to remove all of the data associated with an Unrestricted enrollment for a person. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.6. Release 12.1 HRMS RUP6 3.1.6.1. Enhanced Life Event Summar y Repor t A new module is added to the Life Event Summary Report to provide details on life events in Detected and Unprocessed status. This gives Benefit Administrators more information regarding what life events existing during the specified time period and who may have outstanding life events that have not been processed and may need to be addressed before later life events, such as Open Enrollment can be processed. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.6.2. Tr igger Life Events fr om Per son and Assignment Infor mation Types With the release, Benefit Administrators can define Person changes based on the creation or change to a Person or Assignment Extra Information Type. This provides additional sources for detecting life events and opening enrollment opportunities.. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.1.6.3. Contr ol Ability to Designate Par ticipant as Beneficiar y Plan requirements may prohibit participants from designating themselves as beneficiaries. With this release, the beneficiary designations can be configured to exclude the participant as a potential plan beneficiary. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.2. Oracle Approvals Management 3.2.1. Release 12.0 HRMS RUP7 3.2.1.1. View Approval History and Approvers A new approval history region is now available to view the current approval history for a transaction and also display the next level of approvers. Additionally, you can integrate the generic region with various applications to display the approvers.

  24. 24. 3.2.2. Release 12.1.1 3.2.2.1. Approval Deviations Report Oracle Approval Management Engine (AME) is a web application for defining business rules based on which transactions are approved in Oracle Applications. AME generates a standard approver list based on the rules set up for transaction types either by the approvals management administrator or approvals management business analyst. Any change to the standard approver list is a deviation. Using the Approvals Deviation Report, you can capture the approval deviations that occurred in approval of transactions to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act. 3.3. Or acle Compensation Wor kbench 3.3.1. Release 12.0.2 (RUP2) 3.3.1.1. View All Compensation Detail Reports without Changing Responsibilities RUP2 delivers the ability for compensation administrators to view Compensation Detail Reports based on the HR security profile instead of the manager hierarchy. For example, administrators can now view all employees of a particular country without having to access or switch to a senior executive responsibility. Additional enhancements to the Compensation Detail Report page include:  Employee information, which was previously displayed in a single table, is now grouped using tabs.  The plan selection page and the parameters page of the old report have been replaced by filters that can be hidden in the report page.  A new check box, Do Not Restrict By Hierarchy is added to the filters.  A salary statistics tab will display plans that have salary adjustment. The report can be downloaded in a spreadsheet format based on filter specifications. 3.3.1.2. Provide Responsibility-Based Plan Access to Administrators This enhancement allows organizations to regulate administrator access to plan information in Compensation Workbench. In Release 12, administrators have uncontrolled access to all plans in the Compensation Workbench setup, presenting potential security and data privacy issues. Now, an administrator can be granted super administrator privileges, enabling him/her to access new setup pages where he/she can map the responsibilities of other administrators to the plans that they are allowed to access. These same setup pages can be used to revoke access, if needed. This security mechanism is not enabled by default and does not change the default behavior of Compensation Workbench. If Plan Security is required, super administrators can enable it from the Compensation Workbench preferences page. 3.3.1.3. Reduce Post Processing Time between Multiple Business Organizations To enable more powerful filtering capabilities in the Compensation Workbench Post Process, a new parameter—Person Selection Rule—has been added to the Post Process parameters page. By selecting a rule (or fast formula) defined as type 'Person Selection' Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Compensation Workbench 8
  25. 25. users can filter the employee population eligible for processing. Multiple organizations can now be processed in parallel, for example, by using a Person Selection rule defined to identify certain employees across different organizations. This new parameter is optional and is available when submitting the Compensation Workbench Post Process request from the Compensation Workbench Administrator's home page or as a concurrent request from the Professional User Interface. 3.3.1.4. Perform Dynamic Calculations in Multiple Columns This enhancement allows users to define dynamic calculations on the rate columns, specifically the worksheet amount rates, separately from the custom columns (custom segments 1 to 20). Additionally, users can define a condition and condition results using column names, and define custom errors and warnings based on their requirements. This feature needs to be configured and enabled by the Administrators; therefore customers who do not wish to use it will not be impacted. 3.3.2. Release 12.1.1 3.3.2.1. Anniversary Date Based Awards Currently, Oracle Compensation Workbench allows employee rewards to be paid out on a single day across the eligible population. This enhancement provides the ability to reward employees based on an anniversary or variable date. The award effective date could be based on an employee’s latest hire date, date of last pay increase or promotion, or any other reference point. You can define your business rules to determine award effective dates for employees. Reward effective dates can be defaulted into the Compensation Workbench worksheet where managers may or may not have the ability to make updates. This allows managers to do up front budgeting and allocate compensation based on the individual employee’s award effective date. 3.3.2.2. Print Total Compensation Statements for Groups of Employees Currently, you can print statements for one employee at a time. With this enhancement, you can print statements for groups of employees at the same time. A new Print Employee Statements batch process and a new UI to submit this batch process are now available. The administrator can also generate sample statements before submitting the final print job. This enhancement provides an efficient way to print and distribute hard copies of Total Compensation Statements to employees. Additionally, enhancements have been made to the selection method for the existing Generate Employee Statements and Purge Employee Statements batch processes. The Generate Employee Statements process will evaluate any eligibility profiles defined in the statement setup in addition to the parameters selected allowing them further filter the employee population. The administrator now has more flexibility when selecting the employee population for whom statements are to be generated or purged. 3.3.2.3. Display the Worksheet Manager in the Switch To Manager Search Page Currently, the search results on the Switch To Manager page only provide the employee’s supervisor. When an employee has been reassigned from one manager's compensation worksheet to another, the worksheet manager becomes different from their supervisor thus making it difficult for managers to search and identify the employee’s actual worksheet manager. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Compensation Workbench 9
  26. 26. With this release, managers and administrators now see the employee’s worksheet manager in addition to their supervisor in the Switch To Manager search results within the compensation worksheet thus making it easier to identify the correct worksheet manager to whom they need to switch. 3.3.2.4. New Salary Proposal to be Explicitly Approved Currently, when a new salary proposal is created for a new hire in salary administration it is automatically approved by default even if the user does not have the correct approval. This enhancement now offers the ability to explicitly control approvals for new salary proposals. The enhancement ensures that the new salary proposal approval is SOX-compliant. 3.3.2.5. Update ‘Percentage of Eligible Salary’ in Employee Administration Compensation Administrators are now able to update or override an employee’s percentage of eligible salary in Employee Administration. Previously this could only be updated via the allocation worksheet. 3.3.2.6. View Performance Appraisal Details in Compensation Workbench Customers who use Oracle’s EBS Performance Management can now view an employee’s latest completed appraisal directly from the Oracle Compensation Workbench (CWB) allocation worksheet. This means managers can review their employees’ latest completed appraisals from within CWB without having to switch responsibilities to Performance Management. Previously managers were only able to view their employee’s final rating when rewarding their employees. Being able to view employee performance appraisal details directly from within the CWB worksheet will allow managers to make more informed decisions when rewarding their employees. Overall this feature offers a more tightly integrated Talent Management solution. 3.3.3. Release 12.1.2 3.3.3.1. Streamline the Promotions and Allocations Process with Enhanced Compensation Workbench Spreadsheet Download/Upload Features Compensation administrators and/or managers can now use the following new features that enhance the Compensation Workbench (CWB) spreadsheet download and upload mechanism and provides the ability to: • Personalize the CWB spreadsheet download column prompts (labels) for each plan. Especially useful for Service providers who host different organizations on a single software instance, compensation administrators can utilize this feature to provide unique labels for each organization's plans to meet the different business requirements. • Use the spreadsheet capabilities to update employee promotion data and upload the changes back to Compensation Workbench. Compensation Managers with large populations of employees for whom they have to make job, grade, position or other promotions-related changes will appreciate a streamlined promotions process. • Upload Custom Segments and Other Rate values to Compensation Workbench. Currently, compensation managers can update custom segments and other rates only through the CWB worksheet which can be cumbersome. With this feature, Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Compensation Workbench 10
  27. 27. they can upload custom segment and other rate changes at the same time which will help to simplify and make the allocations process more efficient. 3.3.3.2. Display Market Salary Survey Data in Compensation Workbench Compensation workbench now enables compensation managers to compare their employees' salaries to the prevailing market average wages (market average wages that is imported into or set up in Oracle HRMS system), thus ensuring equity in pay when rewarding their employees. 3.3.4. Release 12.1.3 3.3.4.1. Performance and Promotion History Popup in Worksheet Performance and Promotion history, including such details as current and prior ratings, rankings, job and/or position changes can now be viewed with one click in the compensation allocation worksheet in a pop up page. Giving compensation managers the ability to see their employee’s Performance and Promotion history in one place using one or two simple clicks will help them to make better and more informed decisions when rewarding their employees. 3.3.4.2. Post Zero Salary Increases Compensation administrators now have the option to post zero (0.00) salary increases or increments for employees from Compensation Workbench to HR. This means there will now be a record of a zero change amount in salary proposals of employees who did not receive any salary increase. 3.3.4.3. Control Period for Viewing Appraisals in Compensation Allocation Worksheet The ability to view employee performance appraisal details from within the compensation allocation worksheet has been further improved by allowing the administrator to control the date after which completed performance appraisals will be available for managers to see. If there are multiple years of performance appraisals in Performance Management, and/or employees only have completed appraisals from the previous year and not the "current" period, when the new year's CWB plan is opened, managers will only see their employees' performance appraisals from the previous period. This feature will ensure managers will only see the latest completed appraisals for their employees when making compensation award decisions for the current period. 3.3.4.4. Refresh Plan, Employee and Summary Data from Compensation Workbench Home Page Prior to this release, the Compensation Workbench Refresh process was only available in the Professional User Interface. Now it is available to administrators on the Compensation Workbench home page allowing them to refresh plan, summary or employee HR data all within Compensation Workbench. 3.3.4.5. Ensure Employee’s New Salary is within Grade Range This new features gives compensation managers and administrators the ability to optionally validate an employee’s new salary amount against their salary grade range. This helps to ensure managers comply with company compensation policies as well as better pay equity for employees.

Proposed Grade Range, Proposed Grade Midpoint and Proposed Comparatio now Available for Spreadsheet Download The following fields are now available to download to spreadsheet: Proposed Grade Range, Proposed Grade Midpoint, and Proposed Comparatio. This helps managers who need to work offline or who do not have access to Compensation Workbench to make better and more informed business decisions during the compensation planning cycle. 3.3.5.2. Run the Back-out Compensation Workbench Life Events Process for Single Person Administrators can now back out the Compensation Workbench Life Events process for a single employee, offering a simple way to back out just one person. Until now, the only way to accomplish this was to write a person selection rule. 3.3.5.3. Optionally Hide In Progress Salary Increases in Employee History Enterprises may not want their managers to see salary increases that are in progress if they only have access to non-base salary type compensation plans. Even if managers do have access to base salary compensation plans, it can be confusing to see an In Progress row for an employee's salary increase not yet in effect. Compensation Workbench now offers the option to suppress In Progress rows for salary increases from being displayed when viewed in Employee History. 3.3.5.4. Download Data Using Web ADI You can now download data to an Excel spreadsheet using Web ADI for the Employee Stock Option History and Employee Compensation History reports. You can also now download the Post-Process Summary and Error reports. This is useful for managers with a large number of employees when performing audits and/or reconciliation of compensation allocations. 3.3.6. Release 12.1 HRMS RUP6 3.3.6.1. Email Employee Compensation Statements Until now, administrators and managers could only print hard copies of employee compensation statements and manually distribute them. With this release, statements can now be securely emailed to employees. Administrators can also send statements to a test email account to verify and resolve any issues before emailing the official statements. This results in employees receiving their statements quickly and efficiently, broadening the communication channel between administrators, managers and their employees. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.3.6.2. Email Total Compensation Statements In addition to viewing their statements online via Employee Self Service or receiving a printed hard copy, employees can now have their total compensation statements emailed to them. Administrators can choose to email total compensation statements en masse or select a group of employees just like they can with the mass print process today. They can also "test drive" emailing statements to resolve any issues prior to emailing the official statements to employees. The addition of the mass email option helps companies to directly communicate with their employees, even in cases where employee self Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Compensation Workbench 12
  29. 29. service is not offered. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.3.6.3. Back out Compensation Workbench Postprocess Backing out postprocess is required in the event that the compensation changes were posted on the wrong effective date or the wrong group of assignments was processed, or if any corrections are required on a mass scale. Until now, there was no way to back out the changes posted to the HR system as the existing back-out process meant also backing out all the changes done in Compensation Workbench, such as budget allocations, awards allocations as well as worksheet submissions and approvals. Compensation Workbench now offers the ability for administrators to only back out the updates to employee records in the HR system while allowing the updates in Compensation Workbench to remain intact. The new Back-out Postprocess allows administrators to optionally back out performance ratings in addition to compensation award amounts. Additionally, they can also choose to return compensation worksheet control back to the managers in the event further changes need to be made before reposting. This new feature streamlines the corrections process after posting has already taken place, making the compensation awards process overall much more efficient and flexible, resulting in a potentially huge cost savings to employers. This feature is forward-ported to R12.2.2. 3.4. Or acle HCM Configur ation Wor kbench 3.4.1. Release 12.1.1 3.4.1.1. Configurator for Person/Assignment Spreadsheet Loader Currently the Web ADI spreadsheet solutions available in HCM Configuration Workbench display almost all the columns of person, address, and assignment entities. These make the spreadsheet to be very large/wide for a typical user and a user has to scroll all the way to the necessary fields to fill in the relevant information .The Spreadsheet Loader Configurator module will address the current limitations and will provide an ability to carve out sub-set of the spreadsheets depending upon the business requirements or industry and support multiple data sources. The new solution has the following advantages: • Support the different sources for data in a flexible manner: APIs, XML and CSV files • Flexibility to change the layout of the spreadsheet as per industry/vertical • Multiple processes support. e.g. ability to configure spreadsheet for specific processes like mass location changes, mass organization changes etc. Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle HCM Configuration Workbench 13

Knowledge Integration with ENWISEN Information for decision support to the user within the application enhances the transactional capabilities of an application. In the absence of precise supporting information, the organization’s workforce may have questions that prevent them from completing transactions. They may lack requisite knowledge to make the right decisions at the right time. Knowledge integration enables users to have the appropriate information. Integration of Oracle HRMS (Self Service) with content vendors like ENWISEN provides self-service users the following advantages: • Ability to launch content pages from non-ebusiness suite sites. • Ability to launch third party content sites from HCM self service pages. • A seamless working experience between the two user interfaces where by information like single sign on, subscription ID, and context of the calling page are passed to the third party vendor to launch the appropriate page. • A region in Personal Information (SSHR-EBS HCM) to launch the employee handbook (ENWISEN). • A region in Absence Management (SSHR-EBS HCM) to launch Absence Policies (ENWISEN). • Easily changeable content in accordance with the changes in company policy. 3.5.1.2. HR Help Desk An HR Help Desk application is for the Request-to-Resolve process wherein a HR help desk agent receives requests from the employees on their HR related issues. The HR help desk agent requires navigating to multiple HR application functions to resolve the issues raised by the requestors such as employees. Oracle Human Capital Management provides Web Services to integrate with the PeopleSoft’s HR Help Desk. While launching EBS pages, the EBS system evaluates the login user’s security profile to identify the security privileges and passes on parameters that help the agent to perform the transaction. To enable the HR help agent to use the Help Desk functionality, a system administrator must complete the following: • Configure the predefined web services in the calling application’s Application Classes to store the data from EBS and display employee data in the 3600 View page. • Configure the RIR messages to subscribe to the web services published from the PeopleSoft. HR Help Desk agent can view or perform transactions related to employee Personal, Assignment, Benefits, and Payroll details. HR Help Desk feature supports UK and US legislations.

  31. 31. 3.5.1.3. Access to Ex-Employee and Future-Dated Employee Records in User Based and Dynamic Security Currently, you cannot access ex-employees’ or future dated employee record(s) if you are using dynamic security profile. The restriction was placed due to performance considerations. Unlike static security, in dynamic security profile, the application evaluates security definition when a user logs in. With a new system profile users are able to retrieve the ex-employee or future dated employees’ records. 3.5.1.4. Multi-Tenancy for Business Process Outsourcing vendors Multi-Tenancy in HCM is the ability for the outsourcing provider to support multiple clients in the same HR instance. Each client must have exclusive access to only their own data and should not have access to other Enterprises data. This enhancement will provide the data separation using Oracle Label Security. A framework will be provided within HCM to configure the system to operate in multi-tenant mode. 3.5.2. Release 12.1.2 3.5.2.1. Use Search Criteria to Query Records in the People Window Currently, in the People window, records can be queried by using a blind query or simply entering %. This causes heavy impact on performance when there is a high volume of records in the database. From this release onwards, users must provide at least one selective search criterion, such as first name%, for example: John%. Entering a selective search criterion improves search performance and minimizes the record retrieval time. 3.5.2.2. Ability to change the Final Process Date when it is set same as the Last Standard Process Date Prior to this release, when HR managers processed terminations they could not modify the Final Process Date (FPD) if the date is same as the Last Standard Process Date (LSPD). With this release, managers can modify final process date even when it was set same as the last standard process date. 3.5.3. Release 12.1.3 3.5.3.1. Enhanced Document of Records “Document types” shown in the Create or Update pages of Document of Records feature in Manager Self -Service and Oracle HRMS Fast Path is now dependent on country selected. Managers and Administrators get to see document types which are relevant to country chosen. Enterprises can also configure approvals when new documents are create or updated. The AME based Approval process can be enabled by adding functional parameter “pAMETranType” to the employee and manager self service document of records function. 3.5.3.2. Ability to Restrict Negative Balance in Absence Oracle HRMS now enables enterprises to check for leave balance and warn workers about negative leave balance when they apply for leave. Enterprises can define the HR: Allow Absence Negative Balance profile option to enable this feature. If the profile value is set to ‘Yes’, then the existing behavior continues. If the profile value is set to ‘No’, workers who overshoot their balance will get a message that their leave balance is negative and they cannot apply for leave.

  32. 32. 3.5.3.3. Additional Parameters in BG_ABSENCE_DURATION Fast Formula Prior to this feature, BG Absence duration fast formula consisted of four parameters: Start Date, End Date, Start Time, and End Time. To provide more parameters to calculate absence duration, the first five information attributes of developer descriptive flexfield ‘Additional Absence Detail Information’ are now included as input parameters for BG Absence Duration Fast formula. 3.5.3.4. Ability to use Dynamic Approvals in Checklist From this release, you can use Oracle Approvals Management (AME) to set up dynamic approvals for the Checklists functionality. Prior to this release approvals could be set only on the basis of individual tasks in checklist. With this release approval groups can be configured on the basis of tasks as well as person for whom checklist/task is assigned. 3.5.3.5. Ability to view Criteria Set associated to Grade Step While defining GSP, rates can be associated to the Grade steps. The step rate is the salary amount an employee is eligible for when placed on that step. Criteria Salary Rates enables user to vary the step rate for different criteria sets. At present, once a criteria set is associated to Grade ladder, it is not by default visible in GSP wizard. Users need to remember the name of the Criteria set and then retrieve the details. Now, for a Grade Ladder, all associated Criteria sets are listed by default in the Update Criteria Salary Rate page. Also, in the “Task: Rates” page a pop-up window is enabled on the “Criteria Salary Rate Exists” column, which displays criteria set associated with the Grade Ladder. 3.5.4. Release 12.1 HRMS RUP5 3.5.4.1. Approvals in Global Deployment Using Global Deployments, HR Professionals can transfer employees from one business group to other business group either temporarily or as a permanent transfer. Oracle HRMS now enables enterprises to setup approval processes to route deployment proposals. Enterprises can configure approval rules using Oracle Approvals Management (AME). 3.5.5. Release 12.2.2 3.5.5.1. Wor kflow Synchr onization The Synchronize WF Local Tables (FNDWFLSC) concurrent Program, also known as Bulk Synchronization, which was built to move user or role data from product groups to the Workflow Directory Services (WFDS) tables so that the users and roles created in those product groups can participate in Workflow processing has been phased out with this release. This program is now replaced with Incremental Synch APIs provided by workflow to move user or role data from product groups to the Workflow Directory Services tables. From this release onwards, Incremental Synch APIs will be called internally to move user/role data from product groups to the Workflow Directory Services tables. 3.5.5.2. Update Records with Future Person Changes Prior to this release, HR users could not perform many personnel actions like Hire, Termination, Rehire, and Reverse Termination if any person type changes existed at a Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Human Resources (Core HR) 16
  33. 33. future date for an employee. Even though this restriction ensured data integrity, this approach has become restrictive in many standard business cases. With this release onwards those restrictions are removed while keeping the data integrity. Now, HR users can perform transactions such as Termination, Reverse Terminations or Reconsider Application in iRecruitment even though future dated person type changes exist for an employee. Oracle HRMS provides the HR:Future Dated Person Changes profile option to control the ability of HR users to perform such changes. 3.6. Oracle HRMS (Australia) 3.6.1. Release 12.0.3 (RUP3) 3.6.1.1. Nominate Employee Termination Payments (ETP) as Transitional or NonTransitional Life Benefit Payments Employers pay a lump sum amount to employees on their termination or their death referred to as Employment Termination Payment (or ETP). Employment Termination Payment was previously called as Eligible Termination Payments. Employees receive the employee termination payments as:  Life Benefit ETP or Non- transitional Life Benefit ETP - paid to employees on their termination for any reason other than death  Transitional Life Benefit ETP - paid to employees between 1 July 2007 and 30 June 2012  Death Benefit ETP - paid either to a trustee, dependent, or a non-dependent on employee’s death Employers can now nominate whether a Life Benefit ETP Payment is a transitional ETP or a non-transitional ETP and if it is part of a previously paid ETP. These ETPs can be taxable or tax-free. You can now calculate the taxable and tax-free components of these payments. The Pre 1 July 1983 component of these ETPs and Invalidity ETP Payments are tax-free. Any other payments other than these components are included in the taxable components. The taxation of ETP’s now includes a threshold that depends on preservation age of the employee. The date of birth of employees determines their preservation age. The taxable components of ETP Payments are taxed according to the employee’s age as on 30th June of the current financial year. Oracle HRMS supports the taxation of these ETP payments to include the taxable and non-taxable components. You can also calculate the tax of Transitional ETPs and partial payment of ETPs. Oracle also supports the new layout of the ETP Payment Summary Layout to meet the ATO requirements beginning 01-Jul-2007. 3.6.1.2. Comply with Statutory Updates for EOY 2007 Oracle HRMS supports statutory changes for End of Year 2007 for Australia, which includes:  Change to rates to calculate the HELP deductions and the Student Financial Supplement Schemes (SFSS)  Calculate the HELP and SFSS deductions when an employee has no general exemption Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1.and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle HRMS (Australia) 17
  34. 34.  Change to the Medicare Levy, PAYG tax, and Senior Australian tax rates according to the May budget  Increase in Superannuation and Lump sum D thresholds  Removal of the Post 30 June 1983 ETP concession on tax  Change to the rate for annual leave on termination if less than $300  Reduced percentage of Payroll Tax for South Australia 3.6.1.3. Override the Eligibility Set on the Element to Pay the Long Service Leave Amount You can now override the eligibility set on the element and pay the prorated long service leave balance amount regardless of whether it is accrual or entitlement. Before you pay the employee, you must end-date the element Long Service Leave on Termination and re-link it. 3.6.2. Release 12.0.4 (RUP4) 3.6.2.1. Multiple ETP Payment Summary Users can now make multiple employment termination payments (ETP) and generate separate ETP payment summary for each ETP payment type. Individual thresholds determine tax for each ETP. Additionally, users can create a new record in the Termination window to enter multiple ETP payments or add a new ETP element. 3.6.3. Release 12.0.5 (RUP5) 3.6.3.1. Pay Multiple Employment Termination Payments (ETP) and Generate Separate ETP Payment Summaries You can now pay multiple ETPs and generate separate ETP Payment Summary for each payment type. Oracle HRMS uses appropriate individual thresholds to tax each ETP. You can now create a new record in the Termination window to enter multiple ETPs or add a new ETP element. You can also rollover amounts from either the Transitional Part of Previous ETP and Transitional Not Part of Previous ETP or both. 3.6.3.2. Display Multiple ETP’s on Termination Report Currently, the Termination Report does not display multiple ETP’s that an employee receives on termination or their primary address. With this release, the Termination Report now displays the various ETP payments that employee receives on termination within the same financial year. You can now view the Transitional ETP and NonTransitional ETP within the Termination Report. Additionally, the report displays the employee’s primary address. 3.6.3.3. Use the Changed ETP Payment Summary Layout 2007 Starting 01-July-2007, the layout of the ETP Payment Summary report has changed. A new postscript layout for the ETP Payment Summary report is now available to meet legislative requirements.

  35. 35. 3.6.3.4. Report Employee’s Tax File Number (TFN) to Super Fund Starting 1 July 2007, employers must now report an employee’s TFN to Super fund. Previously, it was optional for employers to report the TFN so the default was No. The default value is now set to Yes on the Superannuation Guarantee Information element. 3.6.3.5. Calculate Extra Withholding Amounts for Advance Payments Oracle HRMS now enables you to calculate the extra withholding amounts for advance payments based on advance earnings and advance periods. Previously, you could calculate the extra withholding from the normal payments only. 3.6.3.6. Deduct Retro Pretax Amounts from Retro Earnings Oracle HRMS now supports the deduction of the retro pretax amounts from retro earnings of each time span separately as follows:   Retro pretax for previous financial year less than 12 months from retro earnings for previous financial year than 12 months and then taxed marginally  3.6.4. Retro pretax for current financial year from retro earning for the current financial year and then taxed in the original period Retro pretax for greater than 12 months deducted from retro earnings for greater than 12 months and then taxed marginally Release 12.0 HRMS RUP7 3.6.4.1. Calculate Payroll Using the Updated Payroll Tax Rates Use the new Payroll Tax Rates to calculate payroll tax in New South Wales and Payroll Tax in South Australia. These rates are effective from 1 January 2009. 3.6.4.2. Report Allowances Using Balance Attributes Currently, Oracle HRMS for Australia identifies allowances to report in the Payment Summary based on element information. This process requires drilling down to run results to identify an allowance balance resulting in performance issues.
