|Oracle Assets User Guide|
Part Number E13586-04
This chapter covers the following topics:
Oracle Assets has a highly responsive, multi-window graphical user interface (GUI) with full point-and-click capability. You can use your mouse or keyboard to operate graphical controls such as pull-down menus, buttons, poplists, check boxes, or tabbed regions.
You can read more about the basic characteristics of the user interface in the Oracle Applications User's Guide.
Oracle Assets workbenches let you find critical information in a flexible way, see the results in your defined format, and selectively take appropriate action. For example, in the Assets Workbench, you can find your assets based on asset detail, assignment, invoice, or lease information. Then, for that asset, you can review financial, assignment, and other detailed asset information, perform transfers, review the purchasing or other source information, or retire the asset. All the windows you need are accessible from just one form; you can query an asset then perform several transactions without having to find it again.
You can perform most of your transactions in Oracle Assets using just three windows: the Assets Workbench, Mass Additions Workbench, and Tax Workbench.
Use the Assets Workbench windows to add new assets to the system, and to perform transactions, such as retirements, adjustments, source line adjustments, and transfers. You can also review asset detail, financial, and assignment information using this workbench.
The Assets Workbench graphic is a graphical representation of the windows in the Assets Workbench and their relationship to each other. The following table describes these relationships:
|From the Assets Workbench window...||You can navigate to the following windows...|
|Find Assets||QuickAdditions, View Financial Information, Retirements, Books, Source Lines, Assignments, Asset Details. Buttons include Additions and Open, which access Asset Details.|
For example, to transfer an asset using the Assets Workbench:
Choose Assets:Assets Workbench from the Navigator window
Find the asset you want to transfer using the Find Assets window
Choose the asset in the Assets window
Choose the Assignments button to open the Assignments window
Use the Mass Additions workbench windows to review, merge, split, and remove mass additions.
The Mass Additions Workbench graphic is a graphical representation of the windows in the Mass Additions Workbench and their relationship to each other. The following table describes these relationships:
