As part of Quest Experience Week 2018 JD Edwards Day, Angela Enyeart, Senior Director of Product Management from Oracle, spoke about JD Edwards UX One and how it can be leveraged to make users more efficient. UX One centers around the user experience, so it is easy for users to configure User Defined Objects (UDOs) to personalize the pages to fit their needs.

Challenges and Opportunities
In today’s workforce, there are several business challenges that organizations are presented with. Everyone wants to accelerate growth while controlling costs, but they don’t always know how to do it. Luckily, opportunities to evolve are continuing to evolve. New business models and digital technologies can help businesses thrive and innovate. These business drivers and opportunities are what inspire the roadmap for JD Edwards products.
A system should be stable but also adaptable and transformational. That is the balancing act that all businesses face. The goal to enhance existing capabilities and add new technology and functionality without disrupting the business. That’s where UX One comes into play.
Why UX One
It’s important to maintain a satisfying user experience within your organization. This can help increase user productivity while saving time and money. It can also help your organization avoid business process failures while you attract and retain the top talent. UX One can you help build that satisfying user experience.
The UDOs within UX One can help you eliminate the need for customizations within your system. Landing pages, simplified forms, notifications, and other UDOs can create an easy-to-use, configurable system that users will love. Users will be able to personalize their experience with UDOs, and avoiding customizations through UDOs will help you maintain your system in a way that will allow you to continually adopt new features once you’re upgraded to 9.2.
There are 52 roles that are delivered in UX One for rapid deployment. You can leverage out-of-the-box content, configure the roles, or create your own material from scratch. The role-based content delivered in UX One is created using User Defined Object Frameworks. Users will be able to enjoy role-based landing pages including Watchlists, analytic components and a springboard filled with related actions. This Alert, Analyze, Act paradigm design within UX One makes users more proactive and efficient in their day-to-day work. Users will also be able to leverage features like Café One Layouts, Personalized and Extended Forms, Grid Formats and more.
What You Might Not Know
The UX One Restricted Use License of One View Reporting allows customers to use UX One including the leveraged components of One View. The alerts within UX One are One View Watchlists, and the analytic components leverage One View applications. With the Restricted View License, users can use the delivered Watchlists, analytics components, and navigation to One View applications from Landing Pages. The Full Use License is required to create new Watchlists and create or modify analytic components that leverage One View applications. For more information on licensing, visit this FAQ document from Oracle.
One hidden gem in UX One is the ability to copy UDOs to different versions. When you create a UDO, it will be associated to the version that was running when it was created. However, there is an option to “Copy to Versions” in the advanced options in the UDO Administration application (P98220U). This allows you to apply your UDO(s) to several selected versions or all versions.
Another hidden gem is the UX One Analytic Component Refresh Interval. The refresh interval can be set within Server Manager (aka AIS Data Cache). Users will be able to see when the data in their analytic component was last refreshed, manually refresh it themselves, and view the interval setting.
There are also several new features within UX One—the EnterpriseOne Message Center and My Worklist. The EnterpriseOne Message Center helps manage your messages through sort and search or deleting in groups. You can also see notifications and Work Center messages through the Message Center, and you can launch to other applications. My Worklist is a preconfigured EnterpriseOne page that shows Watchlists, Message Center, and Orchestration Health Monitoring all in a single pane.
You can download UX One role-based content now using Change Assistant. The download will include all ESUs, UDOs and ADF components. There are also two data packs to choose from—Security and Roles or Demo Data. As of Tools 9.2.2, there is also an option for Batch Deploy.
What’s Next for UX One
The future of UX One is focused on driving adoption and continuing to evolve the User Experience platform. There are plans to leverage new capabilities into role-based content as examples. This means incorporating Enterprise Search and Notifications and delivering analytic component navigation for remaining roles. Enhancements are largely customer-driven, so the JD Edwards team encourages customers to share their both their suggestions and successes to help improve the solution moving forward.
