New Time & Labor Functionality in Release 23B

Presented by:
Surya Prakash, Denovo

Oracle has been a busy bee providing different features and tools to clients on Oracle Fusion Cloud Apps. All releases are bundled with multiple features or functionality. The recent 23B has made remarkable changes in Oracle Cloud Time and Labor module. The UX has been enhanced by providing the employee and manager timecard pages with matrix view. It was a long process to sync the manager/employee RUI time page view with time admin view. Release 23B has made this more effective. The compensatory absence plan balance was not calculating correctly when the time was rejected. The earned time was not deducting on time rejection. Release 23B has fixed this issue that compensatory absence plan balance will be added only when the timecard is approved. The absence measured in hours was only available in timecard page. Release 23B has made the feasibility to include the absences on timecard page measured in days also. This can be taken care of through configuration updates on absence type page and time category having the list of absences in days which should be displayed on the time page.
