There’s plenty of other views as well, including: daily or annual views; a list view; a team view for employees; simplified views optimized for use on smartphones.
The new pages are packed with new features. You can book time or absence direct from the calendar; update or move absences and time by dragging and dropping; mass approve; filter, sort and search for absences by type, status, category and more.
Don’t forget the Time
If absence is considered ‘high touch’, then time recording is ‘highest touch’. Customers that require their employees to enter timecards will find users logging on weekly or even daily to record their time spent at work.
A good time entry system should facilitate fast entry & rapid approval along with strong visuals to support decision making and validation. A powerful but easy to use system is essential for accurate recording and approvals which will help avoid costly payroll errors and retro-pay headaches.
Despite the fact that absence (time away from work) and time entry (time spent working) are both concerned with an employee’s attendance, Oracle E-Business Suite has always stored both bits of information in different places; absence in one set of screens and time entry in another. It’s also very common for customers to store absence in Oracle and then time recording in a 3rd party time entry system like Kronos, splitting availability information across multiple systems. Both approaches make it difficult for a manager to get a complete view of team availability.
Never before has there been a calendar based product for Oracle E-Business Suite which can handle both absences and timecards at the same time. Until now.
