Customizing Oracle Common Application Calendar

This appendix covers the following topics:

Oracle Common Application Calendar User-Personalizable Pages

A user-personalizable page is a Search page that allows end-users to create personalized views of their search results. Not all Search pages are user-personalizable. If a Search page is user-personalizable it renders a Views button in the Simple or Advanced Search panel. The Views button displays the Views panel that allows users to create or manage their personalized views. If no personalized view exists yet, the Search page may instead render a Save Search button that allows users to save their search criteria as a new personalized view. To learn more about user-personalizable pages, see User-Level Personalization User Interface, Oracle Application Framework Personalization Guide.

In addition to user-personalizable pages, LOV Choice Lists may also be personalized by end-users. A LOV Choice List is a hybrid between a poplist and a list of values. You may personalize a LOV Choice List if a Personalize button renders next to it.

Important: Make sure the Disable Self-service Personal profile option is set to No at the site or application level as appropriate for your page. If this is set to Yes, the Views option will not be accessible to your users.

This section lists the pages and LOV Choice Lists in Oracle Common Application Calendar that end users may personalize.

User-Personalizable Pages

Oracle Common Application Calendar Admin-Personalizable Pages

Admin-personalizable pages are pages that may be personalized by a system or personalization administrator. All OA Framework-based pages may be admin-personalizable. To personalize a page, you must first log in as a user or with a responsibility for which the Personalize Self-Service Defn profile option is set to Yes. You can then choose the Personalize Page global button that renders on each page to create your personalizations.

Note: Please refer to the discussions about Profile Options Used By OA Personalization Framework, Oracle Application Framework Personalization Guide and Administrative-Level Personalizations, Oracle Application Framework Personalization Guide.

This section lists only those pages in Oracle Common Application Calendar for which we have identified special considerations for personalizations. Please note that all pages from Oracle Common Application Calendar are admin-personalizable; a page may be omitted from this list if we have no personalization considerations to mention.

Note: It is possible for regions within a page to not be admin-personalizable. This occurs if Oracle sets the region's Admin Personalization property to False. This section also identifies those pages whose regions are not admin-personalizable.

When you personalize a page, keep in mind that you can create new UI elements in the page, using the Create Item page in the Admin-Personalization UI. You may also personalize SPEL (Simplest Possible Expression Language)-supporting properties in a region to bind the property to a view object attribute or to a function name for function security.

Note: Please refer to the separate discussions about Personalizing SPEL-supporting Properties, Oracle Application Framework Personalization Guide, the Create Item page, Oracle Application Framework Personalization Guide, and the Personalize page, Oracle Application Framework Personalization Guide.
