Implementation Steps: Administration

Step 9 Enable Currencies

This is a task for your System Administrator.

All major currencies are predefined with Oracle Applications. The codes used are the ISO standard codes for currencies. However, you must enable the specific currencies you want to use for your base currency, or for any compensation and benefit information.

The 'base currency' is the default currency used by your Business Group.

Note: Use the Currencies form.

Note: Extended precision is not used in Oracle HRMS. You can control the precision in any calculation using a formula.

Step 10 Define 'View All' HRMS User

This is a task for your System Administrator.

Before you can access any of the HRMS forms you must create a new Application User with access to one of the default Responsibilities supplied with the system.

Note: Use the Users form.

Note: After you have completed this step you can sign on and use the new responsibility to run the Grant Permissions to Roles process, define QuickCodes, Locations and your new Business Group.

Step 11 Run Grant Permissions To Roles Process (ROLEGEN)

To grant access to the public synonyms for your HRMS tables, you must run the Grant Permissions To Roles process to create the public grants to make those synonyms usable.

You run the Grant Permissions To Roles process once only. It must be run before you run the Generate Secure Users Process for the first time.

Note: Use the Submit a New Request form.

See: Running Oracle Applications Reports and Programs

Step 12 Define QuickCode Values



User and Extensible QuickCodes

QuickCodes supply many of the lists of values in Oracle HRMS. For example, both Title and Nationality in the Person window use QuickCodes.

Some QuickCode Types have been predefined. You only need to define values for these types.

QuickCode Values are the valid entries that appear in the list of values. They make choosing information quick and easy, and they ensure that users enter only valid data into Oracle HRMS.

You can add new QuickCodes Values at any time. You can set the Enable Flag for a Value to No, so that it will no longer appear in the list of values, or you can use the Start and End Dates to control when a value will appear in a list.

Suggestion: You should use Start and End Dates to control when values appear in a list. Using DateTrack you can change your effective date to view and update information at any point in time.

Also, when you add or change QuickCode Values you should sign on again to use the new value.

Note: Use the QuickCodes form.
