Entering Special Information
Basic personnel information is handled in a fairly standard way from enterprise to enterprise. However, other types of information are recorded and used in quite different ways. Examples include training records, disciplinary records, competence, and medical records. Oracle HRMS does not restrict you to any predefined format for holding this information. You can set up your own user-defined fields for recording, analyzing, and reporting on whatever special information you require.
You set up each area of information that you want to handle separately as a Special Information Type. For example, you might define special information types for medical details and disciplinary records. You can enter a person's information under these sorts of headings in the Special Information window.
Note: Your system administrator can create customized versions of the Special Information window, for entry of information for only one or a selected set of information types.
To enter special information for a person:
1. In the Name field, select the type of information you want to enter for the person.
2. In the Details block, click in the Detail field to open a window for entering information of this type.
3. Choose the OK button when you have completed your entries, then save your work.
